OUR MISSION 

Protect the environment by setting up and operating a cleanup service to dispose illegal dump sites. 

 

Educate and increase awareness among the general public against various challenges related to the environment such as illegal dump sites, pollution and recycling.

 

OUR VISION

Our long-term vision has always been to propel PurNat operations across Canada, the United States and around the world. The gravity of illegal dumping is widespread across America and unfortunately across our planet.

THE STORY BEHIND PURNAT

Mountain bike and hiking enthusiast, Marcel Poiré was constantly confronted by the past, to scenes of neglect and failure to respect the environment. At each of its outings in the forest, he picked up bottles and cans on his way.

 

Despite his efforts, he went quickly to evidence that illegal dumps were present and that he would fail to pick up all the trash just by himself. 

 

He’d find automobile tires, oil containers, scrap metal of all kinds, household trash and big items such as cars. So, he started to research to identify organizations that could come clean up these polluted sites.

 

In the absence of resources, he decided to work with his son Jean-Raphaël Poiré. They then decided to create a nonprofit organization. After several months of research and consultation, PurNat Canada was created in July 2013.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO US

Protect the environment today in order to preserve its beauty for our future generations. The help we offer to future generations comes first through education and awareness.
