British Columbians love the natural beauty, rich ecology and clean air and water that underpin their quality of life. Most also support strong environmental protection and expect their governments to do the same — with policies that both protect BC’s natural heritage and sustain jobs and prosperity over the long-term.
A strategic initiative of environmental groups representing hundreds of thousands of British Columbians, OFC works at the local and provincial levels to advance these win-win policies.
At the local level, we empower individuals and groups to advocate effectively with decision-makers on issues of local concern—and ensure they are accountable for their decisions.
At the provincial level, we highlight opportunities for the government and opposition to show leadership and build track records of environmental achievement that they will be proud to stand on, and secure a better future for all.
