Ecology Action Centre | action is our middle name


Ecology Action Centre reiterates our call on non-indigenous commercial fishermen and their leadership to publicly condemn all acts of violence and intimidation against Mi’kmaw fishers and their families. Acts of violence, threats, intimidation and interfering with gear and lobsters are inexcusable. Lack of action from RCMP is deeply concerning. Please follow the link to read out full statement. 



Endangered Atlantic shortfin mako sharks are set to take centre stage in the 2020 deliberations of the International Commission for Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT). Canada is proposing science-based catch limits that include a complete retention ban to protect the seriously overfished North Atlantic population.

Since the late 1970s, Ecology Action Centre has been giving out awards at its Annual General Meeting to formally recognize the best, worst, and most dedicated in the environmental movement. It’s an opportunity to give some appreciation to all the fantastic people and organizations beyond EAC’s walls who are making vital contributions to environmental progress in our communities.



EAC is monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 and is following the recommendations and guidance of the Chief Public Health Officer. For the safety of our community, EAC's office will remain closed until further notice and staff will be working remotely. Despite these precautionary measures, we will continue to do what we do best: taking action for our environment! Click the link to read a message from our Directors.
