Founded in 1971

Supporting sound environmental decision-making on an individual, community and regional level.


The Ecology North office is once again open to the public. We’re still doing our part to stay safe and healthy, but are excited to be able to welcome the public back into our space.
Please email if you have any pressing inquiries.
Take care, from Ecology North board and staff.

Ecology North is a charitable, non-profit organization based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada that was formed in 1971 to support sound environmental decision-making on an individual, community and regional level.

Ecology North’s programs focus on five priorities: climate change, environmental education, water, waste reduction, and local food production. A common thread throughout all of the Ecology North programming is an emphasis on environmental, social, and community well-being.

Ecology North maintains collaborative partnerships with a number of other local community and educational organizations to promote public education, sustainable living and climate change adaptation and mitigation on environmental initiatives.
