Climate Justice Saskatoon invites you and yours to attend our Day of Action for a Just Transition Panel Discussion on Saturday, March 12th!
Where will you be working in 10 years? What kind of employment will be available to today’s youth in 20 years? What will happen to communities in 30 years, once coal, oil, and gas are phased out?
If you’ve been wondering about any of these questions, don’t miss this important conversation on what the future of employment will look like with a just transition and how we can make it a reality.
Speakers will include:
- Ana Guerra Marin, National Chapter Director of Iron and Earth
- Guy Lonechild, President and CEO of First Nations Power Authority
- Brahm Enslin, Prairie Region Campaign Coordinator with Canadian Union of Postal Workers
- Jamie Kirkpatrick, Program Manager at Blue Green Canada
Time is ticking to avoid more than 1.5 degrees of global warming. We need to pass bold legislation now that accelerates the transition to 100% renewable energy while creating millions of good, green jobs. Our panel will explore what this will look like for workers and what we can each do to make it happen.
Just transition is a framework for a fair and sustainable shift to a low carbon economy that leaves no workers or communities behind. Justin Trudeau promised to pass a Just Transition Act three years ago, but there has been little action since then.
The federal government doesn’t have a clear vision for a just transition, so we will be joining dozens of communities across Canada who are making our vision known as part of 350.org and Council of Canadians’ Day of Action.
Together we can achieve a big, bold just transition that leaves no workers or communities behind!

Bring that person in your life who believes they don’t have options outside of oil and gas!
