A central aim of our work is to help Canada achieve its global commitment to protect and conserve 30% of lands and waters by 2030. Critical to this effort is support for Indigenous-led conservation.
We have a two-track funding strategy:
1. Research, Convening, and Outreach
Under this track we are supporting activities focused on a federal, provincial, and/or territorial scale, rather than on-the-ground, locally-specific work.
Research: Producing timely, well-researched, and accessible reports to inform the design of new strategies, policies, and programs to achieve 30×30 and/or protect and conserve peatlands, grasslands, and old growth forests in Canada.
Convening: Bringing together community leaders, non-governmental organizations, academics, industry, and government representatives to better link, coordinate, and advance cross-sector efforts to achieve 30×30 and/or protect and conserve peatlands, grasslands, and old growth forests in Canada.
Outreach: Communications efforts that strengthen public awareness, understanding, and support for specific policy goals and actions to achieve 30×30 and/or efforts to protect and conserve peatlands, grasslands, and old growth forests in Canada.
2. On-the-Ground Leadership
On-the-Ground Leadership: At present, our funding for on-the-ground leadership activities is largely focused on efforts to plan and establish Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas in two major peatland regions: Hudson Bay Lowlands and the Mackenzie River Basin.
