Canadian Environment Week - June 2 to 8, 201904 Jun, 2019 | Posted by: cnhe

June 2nd will kick off Canadian Environment Week in 2019!

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


In 2019, we are encouraging Canadians to Encounter, Protect and Celebrate #OurNature! One way to do that is to continue our efforts to #BeatPlasticPollution! Join the conversation on social media and spread the word to help keep our nature clean and pollution free.

Do something every day, something big or something small, to protect our planet by consulting these EnviroTips. Discover how you can help protect our natural environment and find nature events near you.

There are a variety of activities planned each year, and here is but a sample:

Commuter Challenge

The week begins with the annual Commuter Challenge, a nation-wide event to convince Canadians to leave their car at home and choose a healthier, greener alternative. Walk, bike, take public transit or carpool! The event is a friendly competition to see which communities, regions or workplaces has the highest percent of healthy commuters. Individuals and organizations can pre-register for the event on the Commuter Challenge website, located here:

World Environment Day

World Environment Day is June 5th of each year. This global day for environmental action has been ongoing since 1972. This year's theme focuses on the conservation of biodiversity on the planet. With the dangers of climate change, pollution, issues around food security, threats to clean air and water, now, more than ever the WED movement is vital to the health of the planet and its inhabitants. Check out the latest news, information and events:

Clean Air Day

June 6th, 2019 was Clean Air Day in Canada, a celebration of environmentally-friendly activities that promote clean air and good health. The goal is to increase public awareness and action on both clean air and climate change. The choices made by individuals, families and communities can lead to significant reductions in air pollutants and greenhouse gases! See the Environment Canada website for more information:
