Our Mission, Vision, Values & Goals

Together with the community, protect the environment, mitigate climate change and create a healthier, more environmentally responsible city.

BurlingtonGreen operates in Burlington, Ontario. Burlington as we know it today is rich in history and modern traditions of many First Nations and the Métis. From the Anishinaabeg to the Haudenosaunee, and the Métis – our lands spanning from Lake Ontario to the Niagara Escarpment are steeped in Indigenous history. ​​The territory is mutually covered by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy, the Ojibway and other allied Nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We acknowledge with gratitude that the land on which we conduct our work is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit.

Our Vision:

Everyone in Burlington recognizes that we are all connected to, and dependent on the environment, and acts on this understanding to ensure a good quality of life and a sustainable future.

Our Values:

Equity, Diversity and InclusivityWe embrace an inclusive community where individuals are valued, respected and empowered to reach their potential and endorse the ten commitments as presented in the Halton Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Charter
Respect for Nature
— We are a part of nature and must live in harmony with it.
Leadership — We provide positive, effective, and educational environmental leadership.
Integrity — We operate with transparency, accountability, professionalism and a solution focus.
Steadfastness — We stand by our convictions and persistently strive for our goals.

Our Goals & Strategies:

We employ the vehicles of advocacy, action, and awareness to advance our mission and goals and in January 2018, we published a new Strategic Plan to direct our impactful work to 2023. The plan emphasizes community participation and empowerment to support our overarching aim to create a much stronger 'culture' of environmental stewardship among residents and all sectors in Burlington.
