FM Ontario Campaign

Help amend Bill 23 and power a province-wide climate win!

Goal: 250

Ontario has TWO WEEKS to reconsider a hugely significant threat to climate action province-wide.

Haven’t heard about it?! You’re not alone.

Buildings are the 2nd leading cause of emissions in the province, and for over a decade, cities have been passing policies that have made critical gains in energy-efficiency & carving a path to net-zero. A new bill (Bill 23) would override council-approved energy efficient design in Toronto, Ottawa, Brampton, Ajax, Whitby, Pickering, Markham, and other municipalities across Ontario—knocking us way off course to meeting our climate targets & making all of us more vulnerable to surging gas prices.

Join us in contacting provincial politicians of all parties to amend Bill 23 and protect green development standards, and help us power a HUGE youth-led win for climate & affordability!

    • The Green Development Standards municipalities have put in place are an important piece of our climate plan
    • We can have more homes AND meet our climate targets
    • If 1.5 million new homes are built without strong energy efficiency standards, we’ll have to retrofit all of those homes; and those costs will fall to our generation.
