A Force for Nature for Almost 60 Years

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is the country’s unifying force for nature. NCC seeks solutions to the twin crises of rapid biodiversity loss and climate change through large-scale, permanent land conservation. As a trusted partner, NCC works with people, communities, businesses and government to protect and care for our most important natural areas and the plants and animals they sustain. NCC often works where others cannot, removing roadblocks to conservation and supporting transformational projects for the sake of nature and people.

Since 1962, NCC’s evidence-based planning framework has helped to bring Canadians together to conserve and restore more than 15 million hectares, coast-to-coast-to-coast.

Power Corporation has proudly supported NCC for many years and Mr. Paul Desmarais, Jr., Chairman of Power, served as the National Campaign Co-Chair of NCC’s A Force for Nature campaign from 2007 to 2012. Our Corporation is inspired by NCC’s purpose.

Together, we can build a lasting legacy for all Canadians and many generations to come.
