WEBINAR: Transition for People and the Planet r1 ... r71 | Add us to your address book

Dear Friend,

You know as well as we do that Canada’s transition away from fossil fuels needs to be a process that benefits workers, communities, and the climate. While the federal “Interim Sustainable Jobs Plan” released in February is a step in the right direction, there are also notable absences and loopholes that will solely benefit fossil fuel companies and the ultra wealthy.

In advance of sustainable jobs legislation being tabled, now is the time to talk about what we need to see enshrined in legislation to ensure a truly just transition for Indigenous communities and for workers and their communities.

On May 24th, 2023 at 4 p.m. PT / 5 MT / 6 CT / 7 ET / 8 AT / 8:30 NT, join the Council of Canadians, Iron & Earth, Blue Green Canada, 350 Canada, and others for “Communities, Not Corporations: Transition for People and the Planet.” Hosted by Anjali Appadurai, renowned activists and experts will share insights on the federal Sustainable Jobs Plan and explore how to win strong legislation that invests in Indigenous sovereignty, workers, and communities rather than false, market-based solutions that line the pockets of corporations and the ultra-wealthy.

Join us to learn what we can expect from upcoming transition legislation, why false solutions undercut community and worker-approved solutions, and what we need to see to ensure that our transition away from fossil fuels is based on the needs of people, not the demands of profit. We’ll also invite you to take action to ensure that our decision-makers hear our demand for strong sustainable jobs legislation.
