Get the word out about Ontario's Green Future!
Support the Campaign for a Responsible Energy Plan for Ontario
This campaign is a grassroots effort coordinated by the Ontario Clean Air Alliance. We believe that the people of Ontario will have a brighter future if we embrace an eco-efficient energy system and move away from the costly big power status quo.
You can get involved by volunteering with the campaign, passing literature to your friends, coworkers and family, linking to this website, or by making a financial contribution. Be sure to sign our petition and please circulate it in your community, workplace or school.
We need volunteers to help with our efforts to spread the word,. If you want to do something about climate change and air quality, this is a great chance to have a major long-lasting impact! Email our Campaign Manager; Angela Bischoff, Angela@cleanairalliance.org or call (416) 260-2080 ext.1 to find out more about current volunteering opportunities.
Or you can use the Volunteer Form below to let us know you're interested.
Make everyone you know aware of the choices Ontario is facing and how we can reduce the climate impact of electricity use. Your friends need to know now about the opportunity to build a Green Future in Ontario. Get the conversation started by asking them if they have ever noticed that debt retirement charge on their hydro bill and if they are prepared to see it increase.

Distribute our flyer outlining why nuclear is a bad bet to your friends, neighbours and coworkers. Click here to download the flyer.
You can also write a letter or opinion piece for your local paper pointing out the costly mistake Ontario is on the verge of making. Your letter is most likely to get published if you respond quickly to a political statement or news story printed in the paper (in the age of email, the letter to the editor page has a fast turnaround).
Host a coffee or wine & cheese party for your friends and neighbours with a speaker from the Green Futures campaign. Email Campaign Manager; Angela Bischoff, Angela@cleanairalliance.org or call 416-926-1907 x246 if you'd be interested in hosting a party and we'll help you get organized and arrange for a presentation.
If you have other ideas for raising awareness, please contact Campaign Manager; Angela Bischoff, Angela@cleanairalliance.org or call 416-926-1907 x246
Contact your MPP
Call your MPP and tell them you can think of many better ways of spending $83 billion or more than building new high-risk nuclear plants. Tell them Ontario needs to get its priorities straight by fully investing in energy efficiency, renewable power and clean combined heat and power before spending another dime on nuclear.
Better yet, get a group together and request a meeting with your MPP to discuss the issue face-to-face. MPPs are always ready to meet constiuents and this can have a powerful impact. Click here for info on finding your MPP.
We need your financial help to make this campaign a success. Your dollars can help us produce materials, talk to voters, and spread the message about the real alternatives to high-cost nuclear and dirty coal.
If you believe that we should be doing more to address our climate impact and that renewable energy and greater efficiency are among the best ways to address climate change, please make a contribution to the campaign.
Due to Revenue Canada rules about "advocacy", we cannot provide a charitable receipt for donations to this campaign.
