To mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Canadian churches and faith-based organizations are coming together on a journey of dialogue, advocacy, and action on the issue of climate change. You are invited to journey with us.

CPJ joined representatives from labour, social justice, Indigenous, faith and environmental organizations today to call on the Government of Canada to greatly increase the funds and programs needed to build a sustainable economy and drastically cut emissions.
