Partnerships are key to NAWCC Canada’s success. Dedicated partner organizations work together to protect biodiversity, prioritize needs, leverage funding for projects, and conduct on-the-ground restoration, public outreach, research, and monitoring. From government agencies, non-governmental organizations, industry, to landowners and land managers, there are many ways to get involved with the partnership. See our Partners Page for a full list of existing NAWCC partners.

For Landowners – Become a Steward.

If you are a landowner or a land manager, there are many ways for you to become involved with NAWCC Canada and the Joint Ventures. Whether it be tax-saving opportunities on your property, or making your land more beneficial for both your operations and wildlife, we will work with you to create short- and long-term management plans. Some ways you can become a steward include:

Do you have wetlands on your property? Are you raising livestock? Do you have a plan for how your land will be used in the future? Are you aware of the Federal Ecological Gifts and other programs for tax breaks?

If you answer YES to any of these questions, we would like to meet you to discuss opportunities for collaborating! Contact our Wetlands Office (email, phone number) to find out more.

For Land Managers and Industry Associations – Become a Partner.

NAWCC Canada and the Joint Ventures work strategically with numerous organizations that include federal, provincial and/or territorial governments, non-government organizations, indigenous organizations and industry associations. Many partners have larger land holdings and/or lands that are managed by associations or local governments. Among many things, NAWCC Canada offer to its key partners: advice on how NAWCA funds are allocated to deliver NAWMP in Canada, guidance on best management practices for conservation purposes including wetlands and wetland functions, support for informed decision-making by providing information on wetland-dependent species.

Large or small, if your organization shares a strong interest in conserving wetlands, wetland birds, and other wildlife habitat values, we would like to meet you to discuss opportunities for collaborating! Contact our Wetlands Office  to find out more.
