Electric Vehicles and their Health Benefits

Did you know that air pollution from burning fossil fuels kills more than 14,000 Canadians every year by causing heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease, cancer and more? By comparison, car accidents kill fewer than 3,000 people in Canada per year.

Adopting electric vehicles (EVs) significantly reduces air pollution, saving thousands of lives annually, while provides $10,000 in societal benefits per car, and helping Canada get up to 50% closer to its 2030 GHG targets.

During this presentation, you will learn more about the many benefits of adopting EVs, including the health benefits of reducing air pollution from fossil fuel combustion.

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississauga’s of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.
