Green Party Principles

The policies of the Green Party of Canada are based on six fundamental principles

Non-Violence We declare our commitment to non-violence and strive for a culture of peace and cooperation between states.

Sustainability We recognize the scope for the material expansion of society within the biosphere, and the need to maintain biodiversity through the use of renewable resources.

Social Justice We assert that the key to social justice is the equitable distribution of resources to ensure that all have full opportunities for personal and social development.

Ecological Wisdom We acknowledge that human beings are part of the natural world and we respect the specific value of all forms of life, including non-human species.

Participatory Democracy We strive for a democracy in which all citizens have the right to express their views, and are able to directly participate in decisions which affect their lives.

Respect for Diversity We honour and value equally the Earth's biological and ecological diversity together with the context of individual responsibility toward all beings.

  • Sustainable Economy because tomorrow is serious business
  • Strong Communities because Canada depends on it
  • Good Government because it’s time to restore democracy
  • Bold Action on Climate because we live here
