CEED Canada (aka CEED) is a not-for-profit environmental education organization that provides tools and resources to MURB residents and property owners in social housing communities. Our aim is to understand and increase climate action and ultimately, encourage tenants to use their local footsteps to make a global imprint. Zamani Ra, CEED’s founder, initially created a Waste Management and GHG reduction program as a campaign in a Toronto Community Housing (TCH) MURB building to help tenants conceptualize climate change and action with cultural relevance. 

Zamani has over 20 years of experience in community capacity building. Recently, she has joined the 1st Tenant-Staff Oversight and Advisory Board for Toronto Community Housing’s Confronting Anti-Black Racism Unit as a tenant member. As of October 2021, she is a TD Friends of the Environment Foundation Grant recipient. In the past 6 years, Zamani has successfully secured more than $100,000 in community improvements with overwhelming community support and has over 5 years of corporate training experience for one of Canada’s current major telecommunications companies. Goddess of Inspiration, Warrior of Words, Sharer of Voices, Creator of Curated Content, Builder of Communities, Paradigm Shape Shifter, and Promoter of People Power.
