The Nature Conservancy of Canada protects areas of biological diversity for their intrinsic value and for the benefit of future generations.

Grantee Profile

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is Canada’s leading not-for-profit, private land conservation organization working to protect our most important natural areas and the plants and animals they sustain. Since 1962, NCC and its partners have helped to protect more than 2 million acres (800,000 hectares) coast to coast. By investing in conservation, NCC ensures that our natural world remains a home for wildlife, a haven for recreation, and a vital resource that cleans the air we breathe and the water we drink. Through strong partnerships, NCC works to safeguard our natural areas so that our children and grandchildren will have the opportunity to enjoy them.
