* Please note that because Canada’s Citizens Climate Lobby is not a charitable organization, donations are not eligible for a tax receipt. Regardless, our lobbying efforts, in Canada and the USA, would not be eligible for charitable status because advocacy is excluded under our charity laws in both countries.
Note that there are no paid staff in Canada.
