Standards and Practices

The Canadian Land Trust Standards and Practices (CLT S&P) are the ethical and technical guidelines for the responsible operation of a land trust in Canada. The CLT S&P have 12 broad standards and 91 practices.

History

The U.S. Land Trust Alliance (LTA) originally developed the Land Trust Standards and Practices in 1989. In 2005, the Canadian Land Trust Standards and Practices were created based on the 2004 version of the U.S. Land Trust Standards and Practices with authorization from the LTA. The CLC is the only official licensee for the Canadian Land Trust Standards and Practices.

While the Canadian Land Trust Standards and Practices are designed primarily for land trusts with charitable status, they also provide important guidance for any organization or government agency that holds land or conservation agreements for the benefit of the public.
