Cochrane Environmental Action Committee

Since 1989, the Cochrane Environmental Action Committee (CEAC) has been involved in local and regional environmental issues. CEAC has approached environmental concerns as opportunities to seek solutions by engaging stakeholders, other organizations and citizens. This approach has garnered CEAC much respect and an esteemed position in the community.

Citizen driven

CEAC was formed by a group of citizens concerned about a variety of issues. Their first focus was to establish recycling facilities in Cochrane. Funds were secured for recycling bins and the facility was operated successfully by volunteers for four years, after which the responsibility was passed on to the town. The success came at a high price to CEAC though, resulting in significant volunteer burnout and the near demise of the group. But a small group of dedicated individuals persevered, helping CEAC achieve many more significant accomplishments.

Working together

CEAC is an apolitical organization with a mission to make Cochrane and area a more environmentally aware and active community. To this day, CEAC’s many successes are a testament to the passion, knowledge and skills of a relatively small core of members. CEAC’s philosophy has been to leverage its small resources through a wide variety of projects and organizations to find workable solutions.

The Cochrane Farmers' Market
