Nature United Acknowledges the Government of Canada’s Continued Commitment to Support Nature and People

Nature United acknowledges the Government of Canada’s continued commitment to Indigenous-led conservation. Budget 2024’s announcement of funding for the Central Coast National Marine Conservation Area Reserve in British Columbia and the Pituamkek National Park Reserve in Prince Edward Island moves us closer to the goal of protecting 30% of Canada’s lands and waters by 2030, while upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People. 

Nature United also notes measures in Budget 2024 aimed at helping farmers obtain relief when dealing with the costs of climate change, and supporting investments in emerging agri-environmental opportunities. Properly implemented, these investments can support the adoption of agricultural practices that uphold nature and climate objectives, while increasing productivity and profitability.

Investments in the people who steward Canada’s productive landscapes are essential for helping natural resource sectors adopt new ways of generating value that will benefit rural and remote economies, nature and the climate for generations to come.

With less than six years to avoid serious and reversible consequences related to climate change and nature loss, Nature United encourages the Government of Canada to continue building on investments in Natural Climate Solutions, sustainable agriculture and nature protection. 

"The Government of Canada has made important strides to show that environmental sustainability is an economic imperative," said Amanda Reed, Director of Strategic Partnerships. "Investments in the people who steward Canada’s productive landscapes are essential for helping natural resource sectors adopt new ways of generating value that will benefit rural and remote economies, nature and the climate for generations to come."

Properly financed, the Government of Canada’s forthcoming 25-year Sustainable Agriculture Strategy and 2030 Nature Strategy provide a historic opportunity to recognize and reward farmers, foresters and Indigenous communities driving solutions for climate and nature, securing the future competitiveness and sustainability of Canada’s iconic productive sectors, and the prosperity of rural and remote communities.
