Who are we?
Toxic Free Canada is the new voice of the Labour Environmental Alliance Society (LEAS). LEAS was founded in 1998 to bring workers and environmentalists together in cooperative projects for toxics reduction and a green economy. Under our new name, we continue that mission and work to create alliances and initiatives that promote healthy workplaces, healthy homes and communities and a healthy environment. We bring together environmentalists and health activists, unions and green businesses, parents and teachers, scientists and cancer prevention advocates to eliminate health and environmental toxins and reduce our carbon footprint on the planet. Our name is our goal — a Toxic Free Canada for future generations.
Toxic Free Canada launch!
We were busy across the country in April as Toxic Free Canada was officially launched at events in Vancouver and Ottawa. In Montreal Toxic Free Canada research coordinator Sean Griffin joined project partner Option Consommateurs in launching the brand new French edition of the CancerSmart Guide. Check out the photos from the Vancouver launch.
