strawberries.jpgSince 1974 - over 4 decades! - West Coast Environmental Law has been the trusted authority on environmental policy, legislation and regulation in British Columbia, and has a lengthy and successful history of influence on the environmental legislative reform front in British Columbia. In fact, West Coast Environmental Law has had a hand in virtually every piece of significant environmental legislation in BC in the past 40 years.

We hear a lot of good things about what we do to make communities throughout British Columbia a better place to live. People like the way we balance strong advocacy with good judgement. They like the way we find solutions to environmental problems; solutions that people can live with. You can help maintain the high quality of West Coast's efforts for a healthier environment by becoming a financial supporter.

Myth: It’s impossible for an individual person to make a difference.
Fact: Every single individual donation to West Coast Environmental Law makes a world of difference. West Coast Environmental Law’s innovative approach to achieving strong environmental protection succeeds because we work intrepidly with BC communities, organizations, individuals and all levels of government to build coalitions and develop proactive legal solutions to protect and sustain the environment. We continue to achieve these victories for British Columbians because of our strong community of support – because one donor at a time has made a commitment to be part of the solution.

We are not funded by government, which means your individual donation really does make a fundamental difference in allowing West Coast to provide British Columbians with environmental legal aid, law research, representation and education services to promote protection of the environment and public participation in environmental decision-making.

West Coast believes in a democratic society in which the people affected by the laws deserve to have a voice. This includes every single British Columbian; this includes you.
