Aviva plc (Aviva) is a proud partner of the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and is focused on conservation, targeted restoration and nature-based carbon removal projects in grasslands, forests and tidal marshes in Canada.

Through its donation, Aviva is helping NCC conserve and/or restore up to 900 hectares on three priority landscapes:

  • Grasslands: This partnership will support NCC in restoring more than 500 hectares of this critically important ecosystem and enhance habitat for an estimated 30 species at risk in Saskatchewan.
  • Forests: Forests in central and southern Canada exist largely in isolated fragments, due to land conversion and development pressures. This partnership will support NCC in restoring more than 100 hectares of forest in central Manitoba, connecting movement corridors for wide-ranging animals and planting future carbon stores. NCC will also pursue carbon-removal projects on these reforested lands to amplify the impact of this restoration work.
  • Tidal marshes: These ecosystems form part of our natural defences against the impacts of climate change. Tidal marshes buffer inland areas from extreme weather events, slow shoreline erosion, store incredible amounts of carbon and offer a safe haven to many species at risk. This partnership will support NCC in conserving more than 300 hectares of this ecosystem along the St. Lawrence Gulf and Estuary. It will also support a study on the carbon sequestering power of tidal marshes in Quebec and Atlantic Canada, which could be leveraged to accelerate future conservation work.

Through its donation, Aviva is helping NCC protect and restore natural areas that are valuable for biodiversity, communities and the health of our planet.
