Canadian Environment Week 2022
Established in 1971, Canadian Environment Week celebrates Canada’s environmental accomplishments and encourages Canadians to contribute to conserving and protecting their environment.
From June 5 to June 11, 2022, join us on social media using #EnviroWeek to celebrate and safeguard our environment and restore our ecosystems.
Some special days include:
- June 5: United Nations World Environment Day
- June 8: Canada's Clean Air Day and United Nations World Oceans Day
You can do something every day, even from home, to protect the planet we all share. For some ideas check out these EnviroTips.
This year, the United Nations theme for World Environment Day is "Only one earth". This theme advocates for environmental change on a global scale.
