What We Do

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is the country’s largest national land conservation organization. Since 1962, we have helped to protect more than 2.7 million acres (1.1 million hectares) across the country.

Our conservation process has been fine-tuned over decades of on-the-ground work, and continues to evolve to meet our changing needs.
