The Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established in 1970 to use existing laws to protect the environment and to advocate environmental law reforms. It also runs a free legal advisory clinic for the public, and will act at hearings and in the courts on behalf of citizens' groups which are otherwise unable to afford legal assistance.
CELA's sister organization, the Canadian Environmental Research Foundation (CELRF), has published or sponsored several books on environmental law, including Environment on Trail, Poisons in Public, Acid Rain: The North American Forecast, How to Fight For What's Right, and Environmental Rights in Canada.
The bi-monthly CELA Newsletter and the Canadian Environmental Law Reports, as well as briefs on specific, topical subjects, are published on a continuing basis.
