About Us

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is Canada’s leading environmental and land conservation charity. NCC conserves ecologically sensitive areas of natural diversity for the benefit of future generations. We are a science-based, non-advocacy organization which takes a business-like approach to our work. Founded in 1962, NCC has built its success on strong partnerships, collaborating with individuals, corporations, foundations, government agencies, and local community groups. From coast to coast to coast, NCC has helped to protect over 14 million hectares (35 million acres) of ecologically significant land. With nature, we are building a thriving world. The Nature Conservancy of Canada has a 5-star rating from Charity Intelligence and is ranked as one of Canada's top 25 charities by the Financial Post.

Explore and enjoy nature’s wonders at Shaw Wilderness Park (153 hectares) located only 8.5 kilometers from Halifax’s downtown. The wilderness park serves as a sanctuary for both nature and people.
