Let’s cut to the chase. You already know fossil fuels are at the root of the climate crisis. But, did you know Canada’s biggest banks are among the worst 15 fossil fuel funders in the world? [1] They are using our money to fund the climate crisis.

It’s high time we #TakeCashOutofCarbon. 

You can help make this happen by sending a message to your MP now to defund fossil fuels—because banks are not acting fast enough.

For years, big banks have been using our money to fund fossil fuels, something many of us haven’t even known. What we have been all too aware of is that the climate crisis is looming. Forest fires are burning across Alberta, the northern regions are melting away, and Indigenous rights are consistently being violated. [2, 3, 4] Our money shouldn’t be hurting people or the planet.

RBC, Scotiabank, TD, BMO, and CIBC provided over ONE TRILLION CDN to fossil fuels since the global climate change treaty known as the Paris Agreement was signed. [5]

It’s time for our elected leaders to hold big banks accountable. Join us in asking the federal government to use all legislative and regulatory tools at its disposal to align Canada’s financial system with the Paris Agreement.

With your support, we can push the Canadian financial system to transition towards a greener and more just society. To defend rights and for a livable planet, we need to stop the money flowing into fossil fuels. 

Tell your MP to #TakeCashOutOfCarbon by adding your name.
