The Crane Institute is a non-profit organization with a focus on sustainability, based in Sault Ste Marie. Our main objective is to help promote and catalyze positive environmental change, as well as create healthy community relationships in the Sault Ste. Marie area.

Creating strong community bonds is essential for any successful society to grow and mature on a responsible and sustainable level. Proper land stewardship and sustainment of resources is essential in preserving our beautiful planet and its lush life for future generations, to see and enjoy just as we do.


A tree can only grow so tall if its roots are deep, developed, and strong. So too should we think to start connecting those roots in Sault Ste. Marie.


Indeed there is much work to be done in terms of creating more environmentally minded and socially conscious communities. Our projects are geared towards achieving more sustainable consumption, and a healthy, vibrant community through partnerships and digital tools.
