Ecovillage Network of Canada is a national confederation of people and communities that meet and share their ideas, exchange technologies, develop cultural and educational exchanges, directories and newsletters, and promote education as a foundation of sustainable development using the Ecovillage as a model. ENC members are dedicated to restoring the land and creating sustainable communities.

Le réseau ''Ecovillage Network of Canada'' (traduction française:  Réseau des Écovillages du Canada) est une fédération nationale de personnes et de communautés qui se rencontrent pour partager leurs idées. Il vous invite à collaborer en discutant des aspects technologiques,  de développement, d'échanges culturels et éducatifs. Il se veut également un répertoire où l'on retrouve des lettres d’information et où l'on fait la promotion  de l’éducation comme fondement du développement durable, en prenant comme modèle les écovillages. Les membres du ENC s'unissent dans leur vision de restaurer la terre et leur désir de créer des communautés durables.
