Ecosource delivers the Region of Peel’s Waste Education programs to schools in Mississauga, which play a significant role in diverting waste from landfills and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Ecosource assists youth in creating sustained environmental change in schools and the community by developing their leadership skills and supporting their learning about various climate change topics.

Ecosource works to increase access to fresh, healthy food for communities in need. Every year, we grow and donate over 1,500 pounds of fresh produce to local food banks. And we couldn’t do it without you, our local business community!
Our programs engage individuals of all ages creatively by delivering educational and action-driven projects to increase public engagement and community impact around native plants and wildlife, water, and energy conservation as well as local food systems.
Ecosource’s nature play programs engage children up to 12 years of age in self-directed, nature-based play to encourage exploration and foster positive nature connections.
