Send your letter for secure, affordable, sustainable electricity

Join our letter-writing campaign calling on the federal government to implement a strong and effective Clean Electricity Regulation that protects our planet, our communities, and our wallets.

We need you to amplify our call for a strong regulation—that means no extensions or loopholes for fossil fuel companies, no more burning stuff to make electricity, and financial support for people to ensure a smooth, fair and stable transition for all.

Thirty percent of all proceeds go to the Conservation Council

So impressed by the efficacy and impact of art to inspire climate action, CCNB now independently supports this creative community.  Under the guidance of Juliana Bedoya and musician/writer/artist activist Laura Barron, artists have continued to express, through art, their ideas and feelings about climate change.

Their work is intended to inspire changes in behaviours in New Brunswick, and to offer a space for reflection on ways we might repair our relationship with nature, partly by experiencing its healing power reflected in the artwork.

Lack Of Fairness, Trust, Participation Kills Renewable Energy Projects, Not NIMBYism

If developers, governments, and utilities want to build renewable energy projects, they must first build a process that is fair, that citizens trust and in which they can participate and influence outcomes, particularly around siting.

That’s the topline conclusion of the Conservation Council’s year-long research into why renewable energy projects fail from public opposition despite the majority of Canadians being supportive of more wind and solar developments.

featured project

Spraying in New Brunswick

Forestry companies spray clearcut areas with herbicides to kill hardwoods and vegetation that compete with the spruce, fir and pine they grow in plantations.

The Conservation Council has long advocated that the province stop the old-fashioned, citizen-funded practice of spraying the forest. Quebec banned the spraying of its public forest more than 15 years ago. Glyphosate, the main active ingredient in most herbicides used in Crown forest operations in New Brunswick, was listed as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization’s cancer research agency, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in 2015.
