Effective immediately, the ELC offices will be open shorter hours of 9 am to 2 pm and with limited staff
in the office to allow us to adhere to the government’s request to socially distance, while still maintaining
a productive team and helping create a safe and stable environment for everyone.


Most staff will be offsite, but this does not mean we are unavailable. We will continue to serve our
through virtual meetings and all staff can be reached by phone and email.

We are all working and are here to help if you need a hand or have any questions!

Our mission is to educate and champion for strong environmental laws and rights so that all Albertans can enjoy clean air, clean water and a healthy environment.



Climate & Energy

Climate and energy are intertwined and often viewed as opposed to each other. At the ELC, we see a world where climate and energy co-exist for the benefit of all.

Sustainable Communities

Do you believe you have a right to a clean and healthy environment? That you deserve clean air, clean water, and a thriving environment? The ELC is committed to educating and empowering Canadians on how to exercise these crucial rights for a greener future for you and for our future generations.

Nature & Biodiversity

Our Canadian natural spaces and biodiversity are treasured. The ELC is working hard to ensure that important habitat and natural spaces for our wildlife and all biodiversity, including people, is maintained for generations to come.
