ABOUT ECOSIKH CANADA
Partnering with All Canadians to Protect Our Planet!
WE ARE PROUDLY CANADIAN:
Canada is a land of vibrant eco-systems that vastly contribute to the overall health of our planet. We are the second largest nation across the planet with wooded land or forest. The privilege of enduring four annual seasons makes our environment particularly sensitive to changes in the Earth’s temperature. Canada’s terrestrial land swallows large freshwater lakes and rivers while surrounding its east and west flanks by the world’s 2 largest oceans and a grand escarpment of artic glaciers that stretch the north.
The combination of such majestic dimensions result in genuine beauty and picturesque landscapes. This gift to our nation comes with a great level responsibility. Canadians must take ownership and care of our national treasures for sustainability of our planet and for our future generations to enjoy.
Canada’s temperature has increased at 2x the world’s rate, making impacts immense as we move further into this century and beyond.
