About Us


To provide practical solutions for urban sustainability.

We use interactive programs and activities to enable lasting behaviour change within local communities.


A healthy, just and vibrant urban life that enhances local and global ecosystems.

We believe that by working together with citizens, government and industry we can reach our goal of creating a truly healthy, livable environment.

Core Values

Rooted in Community

We are local, grassroots and volunteer-driven. We collaborate with other community members and organizations as a way to strengthen community and increase our impact.


We work with integrity and an open mindset. We listen to others and work to include other perspectives.


Through a positive and fun environment, we strive to support, nurture, enable and educate community members for action.


We value clarity, focus and a resilient structure that can make our work more effective and productive.

Strategic Plan

SPEC’s Strategic Plan 2018-2023 sets out a vision for SPEC’s next five years and identifies actions needed to turn that vision into reality. The Strategic Plan is both a map and a compass, guiding SPEC’s priorities and allocation of resources. It is a “living document”; the SPEC Board will re-visit the plan annually and adjust as needed.

Annual Reports

Annual reports are published at the end of each fiscal year which runs from September 1st to August 31st.  Below are copies of past reports.
