About Us

Ecosource is an Ontario-based environmental education non-profit serving youth, adults, and families. Our work began in Mississauga and has expanded throughout the Region of Peel and beyond. We are all about changing the world, right in our own backyard!

We are leaders in grassroots environmental education in the Region of Peel. Our staff works in schools and throughout the community, delivering interactive learning experiences that inspire youth and adults to take actions that make a huge difference to the health of the planet. We are proud to work with over 25,000 students and teachers in our waste education programs, over 1,300 students with the Peel Environmental Youth Alliance as well as over 5,700 youth and adults in our community-based organic gardening and stewardship programs each year! We believe that when people realize how much impact their daily choices have on our environment, they will choose to become better environmental citizens. And we believe that most people are ready and willing to make those changes – they just need information and support. Our vision is to move public attitudes and perceptions about environmental issues toward responsible personal action, while inspiring personal accountability for the viability of the planet!
