To mark International Mother Earth Day, we’re breaking down what’s going on with the climate crisis in so-called Canada, the federal government’s plans to curb it, and how Indigenous youth and communities are leading in climate justice.
In 2020, the Joint Committee on Climate Action – led by the Assembly of First Nations and the Government of Canada – released their third report, discussing how Indigenous communities are and can be leaders in climate justice.
Some MPs have tried to push for climate justice and fight systemic racism by introducing legislation like Bill C-230, which would have created a national strategy to redress environmental racism.
IYR is a registered charity that provides Indigenous youth led leadership, learning and experiences to every youth that participates in our programs. We provide programming, grants, and opportunities that are grounded in Indigenous ways of knowing and being.
