The Unifor Durham Regional Environment Council is a labour based environmental organization with volunteer members from various Unifor Local Unions across Toronto, York, Simcoe, Durham, Peterborough, Northhumberland, and the Kawartha Lakes regions.
Our Council works to improve the quality of our environments outside, in our homes, and in our workplaces. Our vision includes taking on climate change, supporting green energy initiatives, protecting ourselves from toxins, cleaning up our waterways, monitoring our food sources, and to build sustainable economies while ensuring our families remain healthy and happy.
We connect by writing newsletter articles, holding social gatherings, education seminars, and fundraising events. These give us the opportunity to provide environmental education to our members and their families, while building individual responsibility and community relationships.
We draw on the vast knowledge and diverse experience of our members to help safeguard what we love about Canada - a beautiful landscape, clean air, fresh water, good health, and great food!
