Blue Dot movement

Everyone in Canada should have the right to a healthy environment. More than 110 countries worldwide recognize this right — it's time Canada joined them.

Across Canada, a movement is growing

Ecojustice and the David Suzuki Foundation are partners in the Blue Dot movement, a national campaign to advance the legal recognition of every Canadian’s right to a healthy environment.

When we launched the Blue Dot Tour in 2014, we never dreamed this movement would receive such widespread support. More than 105,000 people, 25,000 volunteers and 150 communities have signed on to the Blue Dot movement.

We can’t stop now.

What do you get the country that has it all for its 150th birthday? A bill of rights that will ensure protection of its natural assets for generations to come is a great start. — David Suzuki (Canadian Geographic and The Walrus special issue).

It’s time to let members of Parliament know about this support, as they can make a federal bill reality. We need to keep organizing, knocking on doors, sharing the Blue Dot pledge, meeting with MPs and using innovative digital tools to make our voices heard. We have to demonstrate widespread support to achieve a federal environmental bill of rights.

We will continue to build momentum — online and in key ridings across the country — with the goal of having a federal environmental bill of rights introduced by the end of 2017.

Protecting the people and places we love

Our environment is an integral part of who we are as Canadians. We should be able to guarantee that everyone in Canada can breathe clean air and drink fresh water.
