Communities Inspired for Environmental Action Election Guide 

With the goal of creating a guide to help Saskatchewan voters make informed choices in the upcoming provincial elections, our volunteers contacted candidates with publicly available contact information in 28 ridings, to which we have a connection.

Communities Inspired for Environmental Action Central Saskatchewan Supports City of Saskatoon’s Low Emissions Community (LEC) Plan

Communities Inspired for Environmental Action Central Saskatchewan is affiliated to Faith & the Common Good, a national, interfaith charitable network dedicated to assisting and inspiring religious congregations and spiritual groups of all backgrounds to take collective action in creating more sustainable communities. As the co-chair of Communities Inspired for Environmental Action, I am writing this brief letter to highlight the importance and tangible benefits for social equity and quality of life that accompany following through with the commitments outlined in the Low Emissions Community (LEC) Plan released by the City of Saskatoon in August 2019. That plan sets out a framework that seeks to transform the city that most of the people involved in Communities Inspired for Environmental Action call their home into a low emissions and sustainable community.

There are many initiatives and facts presented in the plan that are of interest to people involved in our group. Of note are the tangible targets for greenhouse gas reduction that the City of Saskatoon’s Council set in 2017 based on 2014 baselines of reducing emissions from corporations by 40% and from community emission by 15% by the year 2023. With reference to the same baseline year, the council set a target of an 80% drop in overall emission by the year 2050 (see p. 3 of the LEC).

 Saskatchewan Environmental Groups Collaborate on Webinar Series

Communities Inspired for Environmental Action (CIEA) collaborates with local groups to offer ‘Response to Climate Change: Present Practices and Opportunities’ webinar series on Saskatchewan's response to climate change.

Communities Inspired for Environmental Action (CIEA), a chapter of the national charity, Faith & the Common Good, in partnership with other organizations in the Caring Sustainably for Saskatchewan Collaboration (CSSC) is launching an eleven-part webinar series on Saskatchewan's response to climate change. 

Entitled, ‘Response to Climate Change: Present Practices and Opportunities,’ this webinar series was initially planned as a one-day event concerning Saskatchewan’s urgent need to reduce carbon emissions, but was changed to a webinar series when COVID-19 prevented gathering in large groups.  

“The webinar format allows us to invite speakers from outside Saskatoon, such as speakers from Saskatchewan's Ministry of Environment and PACE Canada,” says Carroll Chubb, CIEA Committee Member, and main organizer. “PACE financing is a way to finance building alterations to buildings that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” 

The series covers topics such as electricity generation, building retrofitting, electric vehicles, alternative fuels, urban planning, and farming. Webinar highlights include ‘Indigenous-led Renewable Energy Future in Saskatchewan,’ with speaker, Jenna Gall from First Nations Power Authority and of particular interest to faith groups, ‘The Role of Faith Communities in Climate Change,’ a panel discussion with guest speakers, Margret Asmuss from Climate Reality and Michelle Singh, Executive Director, Faith & the Common Good.

Response to Climate Change: Present Practices and Opportunities webinar series will be offered at noon, 12 pm CST (2 pm EDT, 11 am PDT, 3 pm ADT) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from May 12 to June 11, 2020. 

The webinars will be in a Zoom meeting format.  Zoom participants must register in advance at

By watching the webinars, you can discover how Saskatchewan can shift to an economy with much lower greenhouse gas emissions,” says Chubb. “You can gain an understanding of the likely form of the new economy and the opportunities associated with it.”

“Packed with practical ways to evoke positive change in your own home, farm operation, business, modes of transportation, your faith community or wider community, wherever you are and whatever you do, there are actions that you can take on a daily basis backed by informed decisions to respond to climate change,” says CIEA co-chair, Myron Rogal.  “Building constructive conversations across polarized relationships is an indispensable step in restoring creation which we hope this series will lead us to practice.”
