The York Region Environmental Alliance (YREA) is a not-for-profit, registered chariatable organization (#84559 0553 RR0001). Our hands on volunteer board of directors hails from the far reaches of York Region and approves, oversees, and is directly involved with YREA projects. We have a dedicated membership and volunteer base. 3 part-time staff administer our day-to-day activities.
Formed in 1999 to initially campaign against the cosmetic use of pesticides, the York Region Environmental Alliance (YREA) has continually expanded its mandate to address ecological issues that impact our health and the health of our environment.
We are now in the process of shaping YREA into a model organization which other groups across Ontario and Canada can emulate. Our three-year capacity building strategic plans include:
- an expansion of our communication and outreach network
- the building of our volunteer and support base
- the development of an e-library as a source of public environmental information
