We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Green Left Canada. We understand that capitalism is the core cause of the climate crisis and are deeply committed to an eco-socialist society grounded in true equality, peace and a reverence for Mother Earth.

Who are Green Left Canada?
As eco-socialists, we are a part of a larger national and global movement that responds to the current intersection of multiple crises.
Green Left Canada emerges from the groundswell of opposition to neo-liberal systems that threaten the survival of the planet and democracy, and concentrate wealth in fewer and fewer hands. Those systems also undermine national autonomy and development, human and global health and peace, as well as social, racial and gender justice.
Replacing exploitative capitalist economic systems with ecosocialist solutions is the primary objective of our political activities.
We are guided by the fact that Canada is a settler-colonial state, and that any political, social and cultural movements that occur on this land must consistently reckon with, attend to, and re-imagine the oppressive legacies and structures of the colonial project. Our movement is not only responsive to these realities, but actively seeks to transform them in solidarity with the leadership of Indigenous groups.
Green Left Canada is building on the momentum generated during the Dimitri Lascaris 2020 campaign for the federal leadership of the Green Party of Canada.
