CPAWS is Canada's voice for wilderness. Since 1963 we've led in creating over two-thirds of Canada's protected areas. That amounts to about half a million square kilometres - an area bigger than the entire Yukon Territory! Our vision is that Canada will protect at least half of our public land and water. As a national charity with 13 chapters, over 50 staff, 40,000 supporters and hundreds of volunteers, CPAWS works collaboratively with governments, local communities, industry and indigenous peoples to protect our country's amazing natural places. We're also on guard to ensure that our parks are managed to protect the nature within them.

Renewable Energy: A Transition to a Sustainable Future

Saskatchewan is the “land of the living skies” in more ways than one, enveloping some of the most sunny and windy conditions in North America. Despite this natural abundance of energy capacity, we continue to lag behind the rest of the world in our installation of renewable energy technologies. As the Saskatchewan election approaches, now is the time to ask our candidates their plan to make Saskatchewan a leader in renewable energy.
