The Lisgar Environmental Action Force, or LEAF, is an organization of students who support and promote awareness of local, national, and international environmental issues at Lisgar Collegiate Institute, a high school in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The group organizes, among other things, letter writing campaigns, outdoor hikes, student awareness months for specific issues, vegetarian lunches and other fundraisers, and the annual "LEAF Camp", a weekend in May at rented camp facility (not to be confused with a campsite; this is more like a very large multi-building cottage).

As a side note, one of the two co-leaders of LEAF in the 2000/2001 school year ran an impressive campaign for the Green Party of Canada in his riding in the November 2000 federal election.

They design their own batch of T-shirts every year, too.
