Welcome

What is Climate Action Muskoka?

We are individuals concerned about climate change in Muskoka. We agree that climate change is the issue of our time, that we can and must take definitive action to face it, and that we are stronger if we work together. We are an inclusive, non-partisan group that is all about positive change.

We recognize that climate change is a global issue and that we must pressure all levels of government to stop subsidizing fossil fuels and invest in a clean, green, just economy.

We focus locally on education, community engagement to reduce emissions and collaboration with municipalities to build a more resilient community as Muskoka transitions to a post-carbon future.  We invite everyone in Muskoka concerned about climate change to get involved.  How?

Climate Strike Fridays

With the announcement this week of increasing lockdown measures, we are suspending all in-person Fridays for Future climate strikes until further notice.

We hope you’re holding up during this extraordinary time, staying healthy as we all work together to curb COVID-19. As of May 2020, we resumed our #fridaysforfuture weekly climate strikes: every Friday from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, in Bracebridge at Memorial Park and in Huntsville at Town Hall. Please note that we are social distancing. Thanks for continuing to show solidarity with your fellow strikers worldwide.

Support the climate strikers: Honk for climate action! Send us some love on social. @climateactionmuskoka #climatestrike #climatestrikehuntsville #climatestrikegravenhurst #climatestrikebracebridge


Land acknowledgement

We acknowledge that Muskoka is part of the traditional territory of the Anishnaabeg, specifically Ojibway/Chippewa peoples.  The Chippewas of Rama First Nation were originally part of a larger community known as the Chippewas of Lake Simcoe and Lake Huron of which Chief William Yellowhead (or Musquakie) was recognized as principal chief.   The Wahta Mohawks Territory near Bala is home to peoples relocated to Muskoka, in 1881 from the Kanesatake, Oka, Quebec. Moose Deer Point First Nation is a Potawatomi First Nation Territory located along Twelve Mile Bay. They arrived in Southern Ontario in the 1830s from the American Mid-West. The Métis settled in the Moon River / Woods Bay area of Georgian Bay and have been an important part of the MacTier community since the early 1800’s.
