About Us

At Ecosource, we care about creating environmentally responsible communities

Ecosource is an innovative Ontario-based organization that inspires the community to become more environmentally responsible through creative public education. 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. We are committed to engaging all members of our community in environmental education and actively work to provide inclusive programs that reflect the diversity of our community.

As leaders in grassroots environmental education in Peel, our staff work in schools and communities, delivering interactive learning experiences that emphasize our interdependence on one another and the environment. In 2021 alone, Ecosource engaged over 26,000 residents in environmental education reaching new audiences and neighbourhoods across the Region of Peel.

In the Region of Peel, we live and work on the traditional territory and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We would like to acknowledge the first inhabitants of these lands and those who continue to live in these regions, including the Anishinabek, Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, Ojibway/Chippewa and Métis peoples.

We occupy colonized First Nation territories and it is our responsibility to recognize our colonial histories, their present-day implications, and to work together to honour, protect and sustain Indigenous rights, and this land.
