York Region Environmental Alliance (YREA) is a not-for-profit, registered charitable organization (#84559 0553 RR0001).
Incorporated in 2002 to initially campaign against the cosmetic use of pesticides, YREA has continually expanded its mandate to address ecological issues that impact our health, the health of our environment and the planet. We have a strong record of working to influence public policy and community behaviour through initiatives and campaigns.
- To seek sustainable solutions that address climate change and lower greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE).
- To raise awareness of the impact of toxic substances on the environment and on human health and to campaign for the elimination of these substances.
- To promote healthy, environmentally sustainable lifestyle alternatives through presentations, workshops, education and outreach.
- To work with other government and non-government agencies, volunteers and members of the community to achieve our goals.
