For 26 years, the Toronto Environmental Alliance has campaigned locally to find solutions to Toronto's urban environmental problems. A not-for-profit
organization, we advocate on behalf of all Torontonians for a green, healthy and equitable city. We rely on our members to help us work with communities and we act as an environmental watchdog at City Hall. 

Our Mission is to promote a greener Toronto. We work with concerned individuals, community groups, professionals and workers, encouraging the participation of local people on local issues.

Our Vision is a green, healthy and equitable city with economic activity that sustains our environment.
