EDC, a national environmental charity founded in 1990, provides Canadians with the practical knowledge and tools they need to support a healthier environment. They educate, empower and inspire Canadians of all ages and backgrounds to achieve local solutions to improve the state of the environment through a suite of year-round and award-winning programs. The success of EDC programs—focused on education, action, recognition and financial support—lies in the fact that they teach Canadians about simple, easy-to-accomplish actions that any person can do.
EcoKids is the longest running program of EDC’s. Started in 1994, EcoKids is a free environmental education program that offers curriculum-linked materials and activities for Canadian elementary schools to engage in environmental action.
