Faith & the Common Good (FCG) is a national, interfaith charitable network dedicated to supporting diverse faith and spiritual communities contribute to greener, healthier, more resilient neighbourhoods.  We work with local faith-based, environmental, municipal, Indigenous, and community partners across the country to host a wide variety of practical, educational, and spiritual programs that encourage: climate action, faith property greening and energy efficiency; the re-purposing of surplus places of worship; faith sector support for clean energy and active transportation; interfaith climate justice and clean water alliances; and increased support for our climate-vulnerable neighbours.

In 2019 alone, we worked with 90 partner institutions, held more than 60 workshops, webinars, and events across Canada with participation from 700 faith communities representing 20 faith traditions that directly reach more than 10,000 Canadians.
