Canadian Environmental Network Annual General Meeting

March 12, 2016 - 3:00pm

From: Josh Brandon, Chair, RCEN Board of Directors

Since 1977 RCEN has been forging connections among environmental organizations, activists and governments in order to promote collaboration and communication. By bringing together Canada’s environmental grassroots through a national network, we amplify each member’s voice and impact.

When RCEN’s core funding was cut in 2011, we didn’t go away. The experience forced us to scale back our activities, but we continued to give environmental organizations and activists a space to come together and work on the issues that matter to them.

With a new government in Ottawa we are excited to seek out new partnerships and new sources of funding. We believe that RCEN still has an important role to play on the national stage.

RCEN now has a chance to re-imagine our place in this country. Politics, culture, technology and the economy have changed in the last five years and we must all adapt to the new reality. Now is the time to decide how we will use the opportunities that are in front of us. How can RCEN come back stronger, leaner, more resilient, more independent, more responsive to a changing world and our members’ needs?

This is your chance to be part of the conversation.

RCEN’s Annual General Meeting will be held on March 12, 2016. To attend, and have a voice in RCEN’s future direction, make sure you become a member or renew your membership by visiting the RCEN website.

Let me know if you can attend at [email protected]

You won’t want to miss being part of this new era in RCEN’s evolution. We hope to see you on March 12.


Location TBD Ottawa , ON
