Transition Initiative Kenora (TIK) is addressing the root causes of climate change as we work to build a more resilient community and improving the quality of life for everyone in Kenora and the Treaty 3. Our goal is to help our community respond effectively, compassionately and equitably to the social, economic and environmental impacts of climate change.
TIK's Alternatives to Energy East Kenora campaign is a community-led challenge to the proposed TransCanada Corp. Energy East pipeline project. TIK also has intervenor standing to participate in the National Energy Board's regulatory review of the Energy East project. Ecojustice is providing legal counsel to TIK for our Energy East intervention.
TIK focuses on watershed protection for the Lake of the Woods region as well as advocating for robust climate and clean energy policy for Kenora and the Treaty 3 area. We collaborate with First Nations and environmental allies throughout our region, across Canada, and internationally.
TIK is modelled on the global Transition Network with a few twists that reflect our regional culture and interests. The philosophy behind this movement is that if we wait for our governments to act, it will be too late. If we act as individuals, it will be too little. But if we act as a community, it might just be enough, just in time.
Building community through local foods and urban homesteading projects, running renewable energy co-ops, supporting local sharing economies and providing environmental education are all things that we love. If support this vision for our community too, join us in making Kenora an even more beautiful place, together!
