Protecting the environment and promoting an economy that leaves no one behind.
Blue Green Canada unites workers, environmental, and civil society organizations to tackle today’s environmental challenges, while advocating for quality jobs and fostering a clean, thriving, and equitable economy. We aim for an economy that flourishes during the transition to zero emissions, protecting workers and communities from the financial and social consequences of climate change.
Advocating to preserve and create good-paying union jobs as Canada shifts to a low carbon economy is crucial. This ensures that the transition benefits workers, maintains livelihoods, and reduces economic hardships. By supporting unionized workers, we promote fair wages, job security, and sustainable development, fostering a just and prosperous future for all.
Reducing Canada’s carbon pollution is crucial for combating climate change. By transitioning to clean energy sources, implementing sustainable practices, and promoting green technologies, we protect the environment, safeguard public health, and mitigate the impacts of global warming. Acting now can ensure a sustainable and livable future for generations to come.
Building a future together in Canada requires collaborative efforts with workers, communities, Indigenous nations, industries, and governments. By fostering inclusive partnerships, we harness diverse perspectives, promote social equity, drive sustainable economic growth, and honour Indigenous rights. Through cooperation, we forge a united path towards a prosperous and inclusive Canada for all.
We co-produced this video to share the stories of courage, hope, and the challenges for workers, their families, and communities, as their workplace transitions to electric vehicle (EV) production.
The first full changeover from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to EV manufacturing is happening right now in Ingersoll, Ontario at the GM – CAMI Plant.
