Our Campaigns


The Arctic is in danger. The ice is retreating at an increasing speed, clearing the path for greedy oil companies that see this catastrophe as a business opportunity. We are campaigning to create a global sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the North Pole, keep all oil companies out of the Arctic, and to ban oil drilling and destructive fishing in Arctic waters. Join the movement that is making a difference and show the world that you will stand for the Arctic for as long as it takes.


Greenpeace is pushing forward a global campaign to create the largest protected area on Earth – an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary – which would be a safe haven for penguins, whales and seals, and put the waters off-limits to the industrial fishing vessels sucking up the tiny shrimp-like krill, on which Antarctic life relies. The benefits of an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary would be global. Healthy oceans sustain precious wildlife, help limit climate change and provide food security for billions of people.

Climate and Energy 

Climate change and the threats of nuclear energy are real. That is why Greenpeace works to bring about a clean and just energy future. Tar sands and nuclear development plague the ecosystems and communities they occupy with safety and health risks. The Energy [R]evolution is a set of ready-to-implement solutions that lead away from the dangers of climate chaos and nuclear meltdown. It is a vision of the clean and just energy future for everyone on the planet.


With much of the planet's ancient forests ecologically degraded or fragmented, the need for increased protection of the world's remaining forests is more urgent than ever. Forests help to stabilize the climate, sustain life, provide jobs, and are the traditional territories and source of culture for many Indigenous communities.

Greenpeace opposes destructive and unsustainable development in the remaining ancient forests not only in Canada but globally. We collaborate with First Nations and other Indigenous communities, challenge the global marketplace, work with industry, engage consumers, and pressure governments to put lasting solutions in place, both to protect Canada’s Great Northern Forest - also known as the boreal forest - and to maintain the high levels of conservation achieved in Canadian forests like the Great Bear Rainforest and Clayoquot Sound.


Life on our blue planet depends on healthy oceans, but recent reports warn that sea life  faces the next mass extinction. Next to climate change, overfishing is the single greatest threat to marine biodiversity. Industrial fishing has reduced populations of large, predatory fish  like tuna, cod and sharks by about ninety per cent in the last fifty years. Growing demand for seafood, wasteful fishing practices and mismanaged fish stocks and aquaculture operations are leading to broken links in marine food chains in Canadian waters and worldwide. Urgent action is needed to protect marine life and allow recovery. Greenpeace works to relieve pressure on ocean ecosystems and to establish a network of no-take marine reserves–ocean parks–covering 40 per cent of the world's oceans.
