The Green Budget Coalition brings together 21 leading Canadian environmental organizations to collaboratively develop, refine, and promote a comprehensive set of detailed, strategic recommendations for the annual federal budget.
Preliminary Recommendations for Budget 2024
The Green Budget Coalition appreciated the major federal funding announcements for climate and nature in Budget 2023 and at the UN Convention on Biological Diversity COP15 in Montreal, and urges the government to continue to seize this opportunity to transform society to address the twin climate and biodiversity crises, create sustainable jobs and ensure enduring prosperity and well-being for all.
