Speaker: Michelle Marcus from Banking on a Better Future
Canada’s “Big 5” banks — RBC, TD, Scotiabank, BMO and CIBC — are among the top fossil fuel funders in the world. By providing key loans to pipelines and fossil fuel extraction projects, these banks are financing the climate crisis and violations of Indigenous rights.
Join us to learn how you can join the global movement for bank divestment AND move your money to more ethical and sustainable options (i.e. credit unions!). We will cover the role of the banks in the climate crisis, alternative banking options, steps to switching your account, and an introduction to fossil free investing. No prior knowledge necessary.
