OUR MISSION: ACER ACER supports communities, government agencies and corporations in taking action to reduce biodiversity loss and strengthen climate resilience by increasing and monitoring urban and riparian zone forest canopy.

Helping communities take action to fight 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 environmental stewardship, and support the community in taking science-based climate action to reduce biodiversity loss and improve resiliency to global climate change, with a specific focus on trees and their crucial role in our environment.
