Green Drive Oakville – Halton Environmental Network

Do you have a driveway or a garage? Do you live in Oakville? Tell us what you think!

We’re Green Drive Oakville, a project of the Halton Environment Network and the Small Change Fund.
The goal is to explore a new community business, employing local Oakville residents to install Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers and green driveways in homes across Oakville.

We’re at Step 1: doing market research. We want to find out what Oakville residents think about EV chargers, electric cars (including ones to be made in Oakville), and removing old asphalt and concrete driveways and replacing them with permeable surfaces that reduce the strain put on the town’s stormwater system.

Join us on Wednesday, June 2 at 12:30 pm or 7:00 pm to learn more and participate in a live survey.

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 Mississaugas 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.  

The HEN Office resides on Treaty 22, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. For more information on Treaty 22 go to: http://mncfn.ca/treaty2223/
