The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is Canada's leading national land conservation organization. A private, non-profit organization, NCC partners with individuals, corporations, and other non-profit organizations and governments at all levels to protect Canada's most important natural treasures — the natural areas that sustain Canada’s plants and wildlife. Properties are secured through donation, purchase, conservation agreement and the relinquishment of other legal interests in land and managed for the long term.
Since 1962, NCC and its partners have helped protect 2.8 million acres (more than 1.1 million hectares) of ecologically significant land from coast to coast.
Mission: The Nature Conservancy of Canada leads and inspires others to join us in creating a legacy for future generations by conserving important natural areas and biological diversity across all regions in Canada.
At the heart of NCC’s mission is a respect for nature and a belief that nature’s rich diversity benefits Canada and all Canadians.
NCC envisions a world in which Canadians conserve nature in all its diversity, and safeguard the lands and waters that sustain life.
