To lead, innovate and use creativity in the conservation of Canada’s natural heritage; and to secure important natural areas through their purchase, donation or other mechanisms, and then manages these properties for the long term.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) protects areas of natural diversity for their intrinsic value and for the benefit of our children and those after them.
NCC is Canada’s leading national land conservation organization. A private, non-profit organization, they partner with individuals, corporations, other non-profit organizations and governments at all levels to protect our most important natural treasures — the natural areas that sustain Canada’s plants and wildlife. They secure properties (through donation, purchase, conservation agreement and the relinquishment of other legal interests in land) and manage them for the long term. Since 1962, NCC and our partners have helped to conserve more than 2.6 million acres (1 million hectares) of ecologically significant land from coast to coast.
