About CCL Canada

Since its inception in 2010, CCL Canada has lobbied relentlessly for Ottawa to adopt carbon fee and dividend. Over the years our members have logged well over 1300 meetings with parliamentarians and have generated well over three thousand five hundred letters to the editors, opinion pieces, editorials, and articles about the climate crisis and carbon pricing.

On October 16, 2018, Senator Grant Mitchell said to us, “You are one of the most successful lobbying groups I have worked with because you are about to get what you lobbied for.”

On Tuesday, October 23, 2018, Canada enacted a form of carbon fee and dividend which needed some improvements, so we continued to lobby our parliamentarians.

WE DID IT!

On Friday, December 11, 2020, improvements to Canada’s carbon pricing policy were announced.  We were ecstatic when we read about the improvements they made. The government of Canada pretty much cut and pasted what we had lobbied our MPs for. Now, Canada has the comprehensive carbon fee and dividend policy on the planet and our volunteers played a key role.

Our work is not done. And it never will be done. Democracy requires healthy engagement between citizens and politicians and our climate is still in jeopardy.

If you are blessed with financial abundance, then please consider donating to Citizens’ Climate Lobby.

Donations to Citizens’ Climate Lobby are not tax-deductible because we lobby which a non-charitable activity.

We are building on over 10 years of institutional wisdom by the best volunteer lobbyists on the planet. The proof is the pudding. We got what we lobbied for. Unconditional giving and belief in humanity are why we have succeeded. Together, we have laid the foundation for an organization that is changing the course of history through healthy and evidence-based lobbying by citizens with their parliamentarians.
