FuellingChange: Fuelling Positive Environmental Change

Recently, the Pacific Parklands Foundation visited Shell Canada on Kingsway in Burnaby to promote our project in FuellingChange. It was wonderful to see how positive and receptive people were. However, there seemed to be a common misunderstanding among the hesitant that stemmed from the project title “FuellingChange”.

People were curious to know how Shell would be changing the fuel and how this would impact prices. While gas prices are understandably on people’s minds as of late, Shell Canada’s FuellingChange project is not about changing the fuel or the prices. FuellingChange is a program aimed at supporting Canadian non-profits with environmental platforms. In other words, the project creates an opportunity for people to fuel change and thereby support the Canadian environment when they fuel up their vehicles–an opportunity to ensure you don’t miss out on!

The projects take on one of three themes: land, air and water. The Pacific Parklands Foundation is competing for a $50K grant with a water project that will promote responsible management and/or awareness of watershed and water related issues.

At Pacific Parklands Foundation we are all about creating public awareness and getting the community involved. Many people assume the water supply in Canada is endless and easily accessible; however, this is not true. Water supplies in Canada are at risk from climate change, pollution, over-consumption and mismanagement. Moreover, while we have the third largest water supply in the world, it is not always easily accessible to population centers. Out goal is to make the public aware of these water related issues and encourage responsible management.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in supporting then please go to and vote for the Pacific Parklands Foundation!
