Abstract Image

Northwatch is a regional coalition of environmental organizations,  community groups and individual members in northeastern Ontario.

Founded in January of 1988, Northwatch has as a priority issues that are of a regional nature: sound energy planning, healthy forests, responsible mining, waste reduction, and conservation of our natural resources and environmental assets. Northwatch has worked with residents over the past two decades to prevent northeastern Ontario from becoming the receiving ground for foreign wastes, whether it’s Toronto's garbage, Ontario's biomedical waste, Canada's nuclear reactor fuel waste, or PCB's from around the world.
