Land Acknowledgement
At EcoEquitable, we acknowledge that the land on which we live and work (now called Ottawa) is built on the un-ceded lands of the Algonquin Anishinabe territory. We stand in solidarity with and honour the Algonquin Anishinabe Nation, First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples and are committed to our role as a social service provider and as residents and allies in this city to support decolonization and justice. We continue to listen, learn, and engage with Indigenous communities to further our progress and understanding of the truth experienced by Indigenous peoples in order to support and catalyze real change.

Our Impact

Textile Waste Reduction

Since 2002, we have been giving a new purpose to fabric and sewing supplies that would otherwise be thrown away. We are passionate about supporting our local circular economy.

Women's Empowerment

Equipping women with skills to become a master seamstress empowers them to pursue their creative passions, generate income, and build community. We are a safe place for women to come together, learn, grow, and thrive.

Sewing a Better Story

We are showing the world a better way to do business that is inclusive, equitable, and environmentally sustainable. When women thrive, communities thrive.

Partners and Supporters

An amazing organization doing great work in our community.

Megan Duffield
Fashion Designer

In my country, we don’t really get to express ourselves as much. I was not used to it, but I am learning to speak up and tell my ideas and there is nothing wrong with that. This program is not just about sewing, it is about life and learning how things are done in Canada.

Rocio Guzman

We just received the bags and we absolutely LOVE it! They totally embrace UNESCO’s ideals of social inclusion and sustainable development ….AND they look fantastic! Our delegates from across the world will surely appreciate them.
