Welcome to the Ontario Environment Network.

Welcome to the Ontario Environment Network (OEN) website! We are a non-profit, non-governmental network coordinating the efforts of over 500 Ontario environmental groups working towards and promoting protection of the environment.

The OEN offers many services: we provide a central referral service for anyone seeking environmental information, organize workshops and conferences, publish resource materials, facilitate issue-specific caucuses, and maintain a database of Ontario environmental groups as well as a delegate database for public consultations.
