Shared intelligence for Canada’s environment
Canada’s environmental movement needs stronger campaigns, engaging more Canadians and targeting a variety of backgrounds. To develop these, members need access to rigorous research on public attitudes about a broad range of environmental issues: climate change and pipelines, air quality and marine conservation, endangered species, parks, toxics, etc.
Industries commission such research and frequently use the results to shape public debates — in ways that weaken environmental protection, too often. Charities and non-profits often lack access to the best data, however, as governments no longer provide it and private surveys can be expensive, narrowly focused and difficult to interpret.
EcoAnalytics is filling this gap. An innovative joint venture of leading charities, non-profit organizations and university researchers, it is conducting relevant new research on a wide range of environmental issues — and allowing collaboration to make best use of its rich data.
In its first three years, EcoAnalytics has fielded and reported on five in-depth, national surveys: posing questions on a broad range of environmental issues, and drilling deeply into attitudes and believes about climate and energy, specifically. Read more.
EcoAnalytics is a cooperative enterprise supported by its Partners and Subscribers, as well six generous Funding Partners: The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, Metcalf Foundation, North Growth Foundation, Trottier Family Foundation, Ivey Foundation and Social Sciences and Research Council of Canada.
Organizations, businesses and public agencies can draw on the rich data by becoming Partners or Subscribers (see table of products and services).
Partners include the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, Conservation Council of New Brunswick, David Suzuki Foundation, Ecojustice, Ecology Action Centre, Environmental Defence, Équiterre, Greenpeace, Nature Canada, Pembina Institute and West Coast Environmental Law.
