It’s Our 25th Anniversary!
For 25 years, TEA has focused on getting City Hall to make Toronto a greener city for all. And boy have we succeeded! Our success is due to Torontonians joining with us to advocate for green policies. We’ll continue acting as Toronto’s environmental watchdog at City Hall and making sure Torontonians have the information they need to build a greener city for all.
TEA works on issues at Toronto City Hall that affect all of our campaigns and have significant environmental impact - such as budgets, elections and councillor voting records.
