Looking ahead to the next few years, we will focus our efforts in the following areas:
- Continuing to develop and engage the organization in a landmark fundraising campaign which, with a current goal of $750 million, is as extensive as our last two major fundraising campaigns combined. The campaign will diversify funding and support our conservation goals.
- Work with partners to contribute expertise to Canada's Pathway to Target 1, supporting Canada’s efforts to meet its international conservation objectives.
- Renew and enhance our federal partnership through the Natural Areas Conservation Program.
- Implement strategic investments in technology to aid staff in the field and through internal platforms.
- Celebrate the recognition of Tallurutiup Imanga/Lancaster Sound as a national Marine Conservation Area.
- Complete the "Boreal Atlas."
- Launch and grow our Nature Destinations program to directly connect Canadians with Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) properties.
- Renew funding for our Conservation Internship and Conservation Volunteers programs.
- Continue our efforts to build stronger relationships with the agricultural and ranching sectors.
- Support the Canadian land trust movement to increase its capacity.
- Reach out to and inspire even more Canadians through media and events.
- Hire 50 Conservation Interns, investing in training Canada’s next generation of conservationists.
- Provide more opportunities for Canadians to connect to nature and conservation through our dynamic events program.
All this is in addition to our continued focus on protecting Canada’s biodiversity.
It’s evident that NCC can’t go it alone. We need to continue to work in tandem with partners, be they government, landowners, other conservation professionals, individuals and the corporate sector.
