Help us send a HUGE thank you
Sign a thank you card for the provincial, federal and First Nations leaders who made this historic commitment for nature happen!
About the Agreement
The historic Trilateral Framework Agreement for Nature Conservation was announced on November 3, 2023. The 1 billion dollar funding agreement is the largest investment in nature in BC’s history!
This agreement between the province, the federal government and First Nations is the kind of partnership CPAWS-BC has been advocating for. First Nations leadership is critical to conservation success! The most significant strides in conservation that we’ve seen in recent decades is where First Nations were project leaders, such as in the Great Bear Sea.
