The Ecology Channel is a now defunct Canadian category 2 digital cable specialty channel with programming on environmental, ecological, and human sustainability issues. It was noted as the first of its kind in the world. The channel was owned by WETV and Ecology Communications Inc.

Launched in November 2001 as The Green Channel, it was wholly owned by WETV. A few years after its launch, the service was taken off the air. In 2003, WETV sold an interest in the channel to Ecology Communications and the channel was renamed The Ecology Channel. It began broadcasting again in 2004 but was taken off the air for a second time in December 2004 due to financial difficulties.

In late 2006 it was announced that a new incarnation of The Ecology Channel would be launching, with the service being renamed Ecology Canada, although the service never launched as planned. According to its website, several other launch dates were announced to take place, in 2007 and subsequently in 2008. However, the service did not launched and it appears as though it may never launch as the website for Ecology Canada no longer exists.
