Join us on September 23 for a mass mobilization in downtown Toronto, to demand immediate climate action. On this day people will be striking in cities across the globe under #PeopleNotProfit

Will you join us?

Where: Queen's Park

When: September 23, 2pm

Our Demands

We demand that all levels of government, as well as banks, universities, insurance companies and investment funds, take action to:

  • Reduce Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions by 60% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels 

  • Respect Indigneous sovereignty 

  • Divest from fossil fuels and invest in abundant, affordable and clean renewable energy. 

  • Guarantee a just transition away from fossil fuels to a clean economy for workers and communities 

  • Put equity at the forefront of climate action, because they go hand in hand 

  • Invest in healthcare and public services to prepare for the unavoidable, since the climate crisis is also a public health crisis
