Upcoming Events and Progress

Citizens' Climate Lobby Canada


Meeting Monthly since September 2010

We are a transformational group that builds relationships. We have been empowering each other, our politicians and our community since September 2010. We meet monthly to share reports from the field, get into action and practice laser talks. Our national calls calls take place circa the second Saturday of the month on our Dialpad line. You can find the details on our monthly action sheets which are always posted on our homepage in the Monthly Education and Action Sheets segment.

Progress: 1st Two Months of 2024

Greetings Climate Champions! If you want to feel some hope today, then our update is for you. Here is just a sample of what Citizens’ Climate Lobby has accomplished in the first two months of 2024 and what is coming up. 

January 5, 2024:Demystifying Carbon Pricing with Laser Talks Booklet
Are you inclined to favour carbon pricing? Dive into our Laser Talks booklet, a powerful resource released in January, offering evidence-based communication to counter climate deflectors, deniers, delayers and doomers. Learn to respond effectively to questions like “Does Canada’s carbon price affect the price of food?” Spoiler alert: (Ah, no). Download your own copy of the booklet here

January 10, 2024: Advocacy in Action – Emission Caps in Oil and Gas Sector
Kudos to the over two dozen members who sent comment letters on Canada’s legislation for emission caps in the oil and gas sector. Canada is leading the way as the first major oil-producing country with such caps in the oil and gas sector. Check out our contributions here.

January 29, 2024: Standing Our Ground III and Strategic Planning Unveiled
We’re thrilled to share insights into our 2024-2025 strategic planning through an insightful video, slides and our vision of the road ahead:  

February 6 to March 10, 2024: Growing Together Through Onboarding
We are in the process of revamping our onboarding process. We are highly organized and use a proven theory of change. We are seeking carbon pricing champions who wish to build political will locally for carbon pricing and especially form a relationship with their Member of Parliament around redirecting financial flows away from fossil fuels as fast and fairly as possible. Here are the video and slides.

February 9, 2024: Love for the Planet – Open Letter on Budget2024
Before Valentine’s Day, nearly 50 leaders signed an Open Letter to Canada’s finance minister, expressing love for the planet and urging action in Budget2024. Read it here.

February 14: Valentine’s Victory – CCL Canada’s Lobbying Triumph!
Celebrate with us as CCL Canada’s lobbying efforts result in the rebranding of Climate Action Incentive Payment (CAIP) to Canada Carbon Rebate and making that rebate more obvious in our bank statements. It is never too late to share your love for the Canada Carbon Rebate by liking and sharing our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook posts. 

February 26, 2024: Ontario’s Energy Transformation – A Milestone Media Scrum
For the second time in six months, we hosted a breakfast at Queen’s Park and lobbied our MPPs for energy and climate policies that lay the foundation for a sustainable future. This time we united with nine other other organizations and co-hosted a breakfast at Queen’s Park where 58 advocates from across Ontario lobbied 14 MPPs and 4 staffers representing all political parties. Then, we were invited by the NDP to do our very first media scrum in a parliament building. Relive our historic event at Queen’s Park here and our first media scrum here

Social Media Progress:
We recently expanded our social media presence and joined Threads and Bluesky. We are developing a habit of converting our Laser Talks into social media posts. Here are The Uninsurable World and Redirecting Financial Flows. Stay connected to us by following all our social media channels

Cheers to our progress and passion for a greener tomorrow! Many thanks to our volunteers who file Action Tracker reports. Your social capital and meticulous work means the world to us.
