Canadian Environment Week

Established in 1971, Canadian Environment Week celebrates Canada’s environmental accomplishments and encourages Canadians to contribute to conserving and protecting their environment.

Join the conversation

In 2020, join us on social media using #EnviroWeek to celebrate and safeguard #OurNature and protect our biodiversity.

Some special days include:

You can do something every day, even from home, to protect our planet by consulting these EnviroTips. But remember to respect social distancing and health guidelines!

Follow us on our social media channels during #EnviroWeek for more fun activities!

Protect our biodiversity

This year, the United Nations theme for World Environment Day is "biodiversity". This fits perfectly as Canada’s biodiversity is one of our country’s greatest riches. You can help protect our mountains, lakes and rivers, as well as our coasts, forests, and wildlife.

Celebrate our nature

Our connection with nature makes us special as Canadians. Here are some opportunities and ideas to help you celebrate Canada’s unparalleled natural beauty!

Participate in activities for kids

  • Climate kids to learn more about climate change
  • Earth Rangers, a variety of activities kids can do with their family at or close to home, while safely practicing social distancing
  • Earth School, daily adventures to understand and celebrate our environment
  • The Nature Playbook, to connect with nature
