River and Habitat Restoration
Created in 1962, Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is Canada’s leading land conservation organization. With 11 regional divisions — one for each of the ten provinces, and one for the north — NCC’s goal is to secure and manage land through donation, purchase, conservation agreements, and the relinquishment of other legal interests.
To date, the organization has helped protect 15 million hectares of land across the country, working closely with partners and Indigenous communities.
How Age of Union Is Helping
Over the next five years, Age of Union is committed to:
- Facilitate land acquisition to secure protected pockets of ecosystems along the St Lawrence River;
- Contribute to habitat rehabilitation programs;
- Engage with local communities to raise awareness, offer farmers alternatives for a more sustainable way of farming, and initiate the dialogue with First Nations communities to integrate traditional knowledge into land-management decisions.
