Environmental Initiatives


Trees for Schools
It has become our annual tradition to supply schools with free seedlings for Earth Day. The aim is to introduce young children to the fun that can be had taking care of the environment.



The MyClassNeeds Foundation (MCN) is a registered Canadian charity that helps connect deserving K-12 classroom projects with interested donors through a crowdfunding website. Copernicus’ funding supports the Copernicus Outdoor Ed fund that aims to get students outside and engaged with the natural world.
