I. Expropriation

If a conservation agreement is threatened with expropriation,

  1. Work diligently to avoid a net loss to conservation values and document the actions taken
  2. Have or obtain appropriate documentation of the percentage of the full value of the property represented by the conservation agreement
  3. In circumstances where a net loss of conservation values cannot be avoided, document the land trust’s attempts to receive its proportional share of the proceeds and use any proceeds in a manner consistent with the conservation agreement deed
  4. Provide prompt notification to relevant parties, including the expropriating authority and Environment and Climate Change Canada, if the conservation agreement is certified as an ecological gift
