About The Nature Conservancy of Canada

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is the nation’s leading not-for-profit private land conservation organization. We partner with individuals, corporations, foundations, Indigenous communities, other non-profit organizations, and governments at all levels to protect our most important resource — the natural areas that sustain Canada’s plants and wildlife.

By investing in conservation, we are ensuring 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 chance to enjoy them.


Our Impact

Thanks to the generosity of supporters, the Nature Conservancy of Canada is creating a natural legacy for Canadians. By working together we are able to achieve our vision of a world in which we conserve nature in all its diversity, and safeguard the lands and waters that sustain life.

Since 1962, NCC and its partners have helped to protect over 14 Million Hectares (35 Million Acres) of land across Canada. That’s equivalent to:

  • Almost 4X the size of Vancouver Island (32,134 square kilometres)
  • More than 20X the size of Banff National Park (6,641 square kilometres)
  • 25X size of PEI (5,660 square kilometres)

How your gift will be used

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) will always be here to protect threatened habitats and wildlife. You can count on our clear vision and science-based approach to achieve the best conservation results. Investing in NCC through a gift in a Will helps us to ensure that the places we cherish today will be here tomorrow for our children and grandchildren to enjoy.

Legacy gifts give NCC the confidence to continue to plan for conservation priorities and to continue to care for the natural areas we have protected. Today’s conservation priorities may not be tomorrow’s. Unrestricted bequests give NCC the flexibility to respond to urgent needs and opportunities as they arise.

These extraordinary gifts are an investment in our wildlife and natural areas and provide people with new opportunities to get out and explore Canada’s great outdoors — strengthening our connection with our lands and waters, for the long term.
