About the Campaign

Why Now? Prime Minister Trudeau has made meaningful commitments to invest in nature-based climate solutions as they have emerged as an increasingly popular opportunity to reduce emissions.  These commitments provide opportunities for the nature community to get involved and help to fight both of these crises. And we at Nature Canada are committed to working with a network of nature groups across the country to ensure these commitments are kept. 

The Government of Canada has committed to:

  • Investing $3 billion over ten years to
    • cover the costs of planting two billion net additional trees; 
    • initiate regional and urban forest plans; 
    • and put in place conservation, mitigation and restoration measures in forests, grasslands, agricultural lands, wetlands and coastal areas designed to sequester carbon and build more resilient ecosystems. 
  • Reduce emissions by an estimated 30Mt by 2030 through nature-based climate solutions initiatives 
  • Develop federal carbon offset protocols
  • Expand protected areas to 25 percent of Canada’s land, water and ocean by 2025, and 30 percent by 2030
  • Establish and/or scale-up complementary programs at Infrastructure Canada and Agriculture Canada
  • And provide support for Indigenous-led conservation (which cuts across everything)
