OUR MISSION: As our climate changes, ACER supports communities with grassroots initiatives to plant trees, and educates on how to measure, monitor and report on tree health and growth.

Helping communities understand and respond locally to global climate change
The Association for Canadian Educational Resources (ACER) is a charitable organization founded in 1987 with the initial goal to create more Canadian-centric scientific educational materials and activities for students of all ages. Over the last 35 years ACER has done so much more, working to educate schools and communities on the importance of biodiversity, and better understand and become more resilient to global climate change, with a specific focus on trees and their crucial role in our environment. ACER’s tree planting, measuring and monitoring initiatives in both urban and riparian zones continue to help make communities greener, healthier and more resilient in the midst of the current climate crisis.
