About East Coast Environmental Law

The East Coast Environmental Law Association is a registered Canadian charity that operates throughout Atlantic Canada and has its main office in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Our vision and mission reflect our desire for a future where the just application of innovative and effective environmental laws provides Atlantic Canadians with a clean, healthy environment.

·       Host workshops, create publications, and provide presentations on the legal aspects of environmental issues ranging from endangered species to climate change to contaminated water;
·       Respond to inquiries from the public about environmental law matters;
·       Mentor law students on the role and value of law in the public interest;
·       Publish open-access reports and summaries of environmental cases; and
·       Collaborate with government, law firms, educational institutions, and non-government organizations to enhance our understanding and make environmental law more effective.

East Coast Environmental Law is a growing non-profit where staff and Board members work closely to meet and exceed our goals.
