About Us

Who We Are

We Are United We build diverse partnerships by unearthing shared environmental, social or economic values, and we transform our collective strength into solutions to Canada’s greatest conservation challenges.

Partner With Us to Reimagine Conservation

We believe that nature—thriving and full of life—is the foundation of strong communities, a prosperous economy, and a future worth passing on to our grandchildren. We believe that reconciliation is at the heart of our progress as a nation. And we believe that Canada can be a global beacon for hope.

We can turn conflict into opportunity by working together, and by recognizing we are all united with nature, and with each other.
