Webinar: What Can You Do to Green Canada’s Financial System?

April 25, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Canada cannot achieve its climate goals without the full participation of the financial system. Canadians with bank accounts, pension funds and/or insurance policies all have a vested interest in aligning this system with climate safety. Learn what financial actors are already doing, what more needs to be done, the role for regulation, and what you can do.
