About the Centre for Land Conservation (CLC)

The CLC is a not-for-profit, registered charity established in 2019 that seeks to support the conservation of private lands in Canada. Our vision is for conservation lands in Canada to contribute significantly to biodiversity targets through strong and leading-edge practices. Our approach reflects a commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and collaboration with conservation partners. As custodian of the Canadian Land Trust Standards and Practices, the CLC works with the land conservation community as an independent voice to enhance public trust and confidence in private land conservation.
