The Greenpeace Canada Education Fund conducts, supports and publicizes research on climate change, environmental protection, ecological conservation and preservation, environmental science and renewable energy. We also work to increase understanding of the environmental, climate, and energy issues that affect people living in Canada and around the world through education and other awareness-raising activities.
There are two Greenpeace organizations in Canada, both part of the same global movement. Established in 2020, the Greenpeace Canada Education Fund is a registered charity focused on research and education. Greenpeace Canada, which runs campaigns to protect the planet and promote justice and peace, is the one more people know about and was established in 1971. To advocate more effectively for the planet, including in ways that charities can’t, Greenpeace Canada is a non-profit rather than a charity.
