Submission by Ecology Action Centre to the Government of Canada’s climate portal
Since 1971, the Ecology Action Centre (EAC) has been working to build a healthier, more sustainable Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada. Today the EAC has over 4,500 members, 500 volunteers, 40 staff, and seven action areas. The EAC works closely with social and natural scientists and uses detailed policy analysis to encourage a society in Nova Scotia that respects and protects nature and provides environmentally and economically sustainable solutions for its citizens. This document includes examples from Nova Scotia that have been successful in reducing our emissions as well as recommendations regarding our marine and coastal environment and fisheries and climate change.
