  • Expand membership to have greater capacity to do the work of CANA. 
     

Values

  • CANA will focus on solutions-based climate action at the local, provincial, national and global level.

  • Climate change affects all people across the political spectrum therefore CANA shall remain non-partisan and accessible to all using politically respectful terms.

  • As CANA members, we will strive to always act with respect, integrity and demonstrate inclusivity.

  • CANA will utilize information that is science driven and based on evidence, exploration, open-mindedness and rigor.

  • Transparency builds trust and saves time. CANA will focus on creating an environment where we can communicate openly and in a timely manner, be curious to ask why and be accountable for our decisions and actions.
