About Us

Ecosource is an environmental education charity in Ontario serving children, youth, adults, and families with a focus on improving access to environmental engagement for marginalized communities.

Our work began in Mississauga in 1979 and has expanded throughout the Region of Peel and beyond to promote waste reduction, urban agriculture, sustainability education, nature connection, and youth leadership.

As leaders in grassroots environmental education in Peel, our staff works in schools and communities, delivering interactive learning experiences that emphasize our interdependence on one another and the environment. In 2017 alone, Ecosource engaged over 36,000 residents in environmental education reaching new audiences and neighbourhoods across the Region of Peel.
