Green Venture empowers Hamiltonians to implement greener practices in their homes and communities to make our city a climate champion.

Land Acknowledgement

Green Venture’s operation center, EcoHouse, is situated on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabeg, and Attawandaron nations, within the lands protected by the Dish with One Spoon wampum agreement.  We acknowledge that Green Venture is a part of this agreement and we are committed to being stewards of the land. We further acknowledge that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Today, the City of Hamilton is home to many Indigenous peoples – including the Métis and Inuit – from across Turtle Island (North America). We are committed to reconciliation and protecting the land for those who will come after us. We continue to learn about the rich history of Turtle Island and its Indigenous Peoples so that we can better understand our roles as Treaty People, neighbours, partners and caretakers.

Taking action on climate change can happen in your own home with energy audits and retrofits that save energy and save you money. Our team walks you through the changes you can make and the supports to get you there.

Community Greening

Our team inspires community members to manage rain where it falls, reducing water pollution and flooding, making grey spaces green, and helping to grow our urban forest, by providing knowledge, tools, and incentives.
