Support Environmental Rights in Nova Scotia

ER Action Banner

 Did you know that the right to a healthy environment is not protected by law?

ECELAW is asking citizens from across Nova Scotia to demand the right to a healthy environment. Last month, the Nova Scotia Environmental Rights Working Group (NSERWG) launched a non-partisan Environmental Bill of Rights for Nova Scotia at the Wooden Monkey in Halifax. Now, we need citizen action.  

Read more on how you can get involved in ensuring environmental rights for all Nova Scotians.

Welcome to ECELAW

East Coast Environmental Law Association, established in 2007 as a non-profit organization, responds to community inquiries, carries out legal and policy research and presents educational resources and opportunities to increase public awareness of environmental laws in Atlantic Canada. Our objective is to build capacity in the public and among legal practitioners so that we can work together to ensure that environmental laws are effectively used and strengthened.

Through its workshops, inquiry line and projects, ECELAW's work touches on a variety of wide-ranging issues of lasting public importance including water, fisheries, mining, energy, protected places, species at risk, and environmental assessment.

If you have a question about environmental law, send a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. You may also telephone us at (902) 494-7121.
