To accelerate action to address climate change and create a healthy future where we can all afford good lives, Canada must redirect its financial system towards climate action.

Investing in a clean future should be easy for individuals - we shouldn’t have to debate with our bank to find fossil free investment solutions. That’s why we’re advocating for the federal government to pass policies that require all Canadian financial institutions to align their lending and investments with climate action.
