By Amy Juschka

The Blue Dot movement is a comprehensive, multi-year campaign to support the groundswell of Canadians who want meaningful action to protect the people and places they love.

We have a plan to create lasting change for generations. Here's how:

Across the country, Canadians believe in our inherent right to a healthy environment — clean water, fresh air, safe food and a say in decisions that affect our health and wellbeing. One by one, people like you stand up to say this right should be recognized.

This growing movement of Canadians calls upon their local communities to pass municipal declarations respecting people's right to live in a healthy environment.

Community by community, this movement will inspire decision-makers across our provinces and territories to take notice.

With so many communities calling for action from all levels of government, the next step is to have our provincial and federal governments follow suit and pass environmental bills of rights.

Recognition in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms — the highest law in our country — is the final step toward protecting the right to clean air, fresh water and safe food for all Canadians. This ensures that we all benefit from a healthy environment, world-class standards and a say in the decisions that affect our health.

Blue Dot is backed by the David Suzuki Foundation, one of the most trusted environmental organizations in Canada. Together we are building a movement of millions of ordinary people taking extraordinary action to protect our right to a healthy environment and inspire the next generation of environmental leaders.
