The way forward is clear …


SCAN! must help create a dynamic grassroots movement of seniors working with all climate activists until we reach critical mass before 2030.


We know what we must do.


Now let’s do it!

 SCAN! member Martin Bush posts informative and incisive analyses of climate issues to his blog, Climate Zone. If you sign up for his newsletter, you won’t be disappointed!







Who we are …


We are seniors compelled to urgent action


Young people are calling on governments to act decisively on the climate emergency. As seniors we will support their lead, amplify their voices and add our own to the growing movement for climate action. We are building a seniors’ climate action group. One that is democratic, accountable, equitable and participatory. A community in which we value each other’s knowledge, experience and views.

Our seniors’ climate action group will inform and mobilize seniors in an effort to prevent more climate catastrophes. We recognize that climate action is also a demand for social justice and economic transformation–the opportunity, as well as the need, to address racism and economic inequities. We know that Canada was founded on the occupation/ invasion/ colonization of Indigenous lands. We are in this for the sake of future generations and the survival of life on the planet.

Time is running out.

An Interview with SCAN!’s Co-Chair, Nick Decarlo

This podcast from Believe In People is well worth your time.


Curbing Emissions from the Oil and Gas Industry

SCAN! just submitted a detailed plan to the federal government.


Want to learn more about what’s on SCAN!’s radar?

SCAN! made a submission to the Government of Canada on the national adaptation strategy via a public engagement process in the development of the strategy.  Adaptation is on the agenda of climate action groups including ours.  We wrote that we must be consulted and have much to offer; that the climate crisis must be viewed holistically, ecologically; and that measures taken must be based on caring social justice or they will fail.  

We hope that the 10 recommendations made herein will facilitate preparation of an effective, inclusive National Adaptation Strategy.

SCAN!’S fundraiser concert, originally scheduled for May 28, will now be held on Sunday, November 12.

Please mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details!
