Working together to Keep Nature in our Future.
Under Environment Canada’s Ecological Gifts Program, if the land is certified as ecologically sensitive it may be eligible for significant tax benefits. Check out further information on Ecological Gifts at Environment Canada’s web site. Legal advice should be sought on conservation covenants and the tax laws that apply.
Land use decisions, policies, and practices recognize the importance of ecological conservation. SOSCP and partners work to provide decision-makers, planners, and developers with information, tools and expertise needed to make sustainable planning choices.
Promote Ecologically Sustainable Land-Use
Supporting the acquisition of key habitats includes purchases, covenants or donations of private land, often in conjunction with enhanced protection of Crown lands. Securement activities include restoration, care, and management of these important areas.
Securing Key Habitats
SOSCP promotes stewardship activities and encourages landowners to protect biodiversity, enhance habitat for plants and wildlife, and manage lands sustainably.
Enhancing Stewardship on Public and Private Land
Involving communities in conservation is essential. SOSCP support professional development workshops, school programs, festivals and outdoor seminars that foster a love and understanding of our natural environment.
Expanding Community Involvement
SOSCP is committed to using a science-based approach to guide actions and decision-making, and to promote and facilitate further scientific research for species and ecosystems at risk.
Applying a Science-Based Approach
The En'owkin Centre continues its work to recover, revitalize and perpetuate Syilx Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) so it can be applied throughout traditional Syilx territory.
