Ecology Action Centre


The Ecology Action Centre works closely with social and natural scientists and makes strong use of science in communicating its message to the public. Since 1971, the EAC has been working to build a healthier, more sustainable Nova Scotia.

The Centre’s earliest projects included recycling, composting, and energy conservation, and these are now widely recognized environmental issues. Our current areas of focus include Built Environment, Marine Issues, Coastal Issues, Wilderness, Food, Transportation and Energy Issues.
Some accolades we’ve received over the years include:

  • “Best Activist Organization” in The Coast for eight years running
  • One of the Globe and Mail’s 10 best-run charities in Canada, 2000
  • Arthur Kroeger Awards for Public Affairs in the category of Citizenship and Community Affairs, 2009
  • One of Tides Canada’s Top 10, 2003 and 2010
