Ecology Action Centre | action is our middle name


Earlier this month, EAC created and sent a survey to each of the three candidates running for the provincial Liberal Party leadership. The survey aimed to provide an opportunity for candidates to pledge their support for some of the major environmental issues affecting our province. 

From the responses given and the candidates' public platforms, we’ve put together a summary of where each candidate stands on a variety of environmental issues. Follow the link below to read more!




Nova Scotia’s Sustainable Development Goals Act (SDGA) was introduced in Oct. 2019. It includes a legislated GHG emissions reduction target for 2030, legislates net zero emissions by 2050, and committed to a new climate change plan to be developed for NS by the end of 2020. 

The Act also set a requirement for public consultations to inform the development of new targets and goals. Unfortunately, 2020 has passed with little action from the province. No public consultations, no regulations, and no climate plan.
