Faith and the Environment Toolkit
This Faith and the Environment Toolkit was created by CEA as a resource for the Greening Scared Spaces (GSS) project. GSS is a program by Faith & the Common Good to assist faith communities with environmental initiatives.
This toolkit has been created to empower and engage faith communities in building a safe, healthy and sustainable future. This inaugural edition of the toolkit focuses on three topics: water, biodiversity and food waste. We hope that it serves as a meaningful resource to educators, organizations and others as well, who are engaged in building healthy and sustainable communities.
Environmental Resources for LINC and ESL
CEA is engaged in offering workshops and tools to impart environmental education to LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) and ESL (English as Second Language) classes. To make environmental education accessible to all, CEA along with support of Environment Canada and Health Canada has developed the three environmental educational resources. These resources are designed to inform and sensitize people on how to act responsibly to preserve the planet for future generations.
Aligned with the LINC and ESL curriculum, these resources help LINC and ESL teachers educate new immigrants about climate change, energy conservation, water conservation, air pollution and health.

- Valleybrook Community Characterization Report
Community Characterization Report
This Community Characterization Report was developed to highlight strategies, activities and methods that can be used for environmental outreach within the Valleybrook (located between Sandalwood Parkway and Williams Parkway) Corridor in Brampton, Ontario.
These strategies and methods evolved as a result of surveys and consultations conducted with the community. The report was produced in partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), City of Brampton and Brampton Horticultural Society (BHS).
Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) – National Youth Engagement Policy
In 2009 Community Environment Alliance undertook a project to develop an effective Youth Engagement Strategy for Environment Canada’s Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) outreach.
By engaging over 100 youth from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds through focus groups, Community Environment Alliance identified the most effective media, style, design, messaging and elements that would capture the attention of young people. This project culminated in the development of a poster that outlined the findings. The project was presented at 2009 National AQHI Conference in Niagara, Ontario.
