Green Parties around the world share common values as expressed in the Charter of the Global Greens. The policies of the Green Party of Canada are based on six fundamental principles:
We declare our commitment to non-violence and strive for a culture of peace and cooperation between states.
We recognize the scope for the material expansion of society within the biosphere, and the need to maintain biodiversity through the use of renewable resources.
We assert that the key to social justice is the equitable distribution of resources to ensure that all have full opportunities for personal and social development.
We acknowledge that human beings are part of the natural world and we respect the specific value of all forms of life, including non-human species.
We strive for a democracy in which all citizens have the right to express their views, and are able to directly participate in decisions which affect their lives.
Respect for Diversity
We honour and value equally the Earth’s biological and ecological diversity together with the context of individual responsibility toward all beings.

Support your local riding for the Federal Greens
Volunteers support the activities of the board throughout the year.
You can support your local Green Party by donating, volunteering and or becoming a member.
Donations help build a fund to finance our election campaigns, pay the cost of running the local chapter, pay for the website etc.
We all have busy lives, but it would be great if you can help out at one of our events, or even taking ownership of an event once a year. You can sign up here.
You can also become a member. This allows you to chose a candidate to run for a seat in the next election. Note their are federal and provincial memberships as those are two different organisations (bu run mostly by the same local people in our case)
