Canadian Environment Week 2023
Established in 1971, Canadian Environment Week celebrates Canada’s environmental accomplishments and encourages Canadians to contribute to conserving and protecting their environment.
From June 4 to June 10, 2023, join us on social media using #EnviroWeek and #BeatPlasticPollution. Celebrate and safeguard our environment, and reduce plastic waste and pollution to protect the wildlife and places we love.
Some special days include:
- June 5: United Nations World Environment Day
- June 7: Canada’s Clean Air Day
- June 8: United Nations World Oceans Day
This year, the United Nations theme for the 50th anniversary of World Environment Day is "Solutions to Plastic Pollution". This theme advocates for global action to end plastic pollution.
You can do something to beat plastic pollution every day, even from home, to take care of the planet we all share. Learn more about how you can get involved by checking out this Practical Guide.
