Investing in long-term conservation

Part of creating vibrant and sustainable communities in our province includes making sure they are environmentally sustainable while considering long term conservation.

Through Pathway to Canada Target 1, provinces, territories, and the federal government have set a goal to collectively conserve at least 17 per cent of the country’s land and freshwater by the end of 2020.

With the support of $9.3 million under the federal government's Canada Nature Fund, the Government of New Brunswick intends to more than double its protected and conserved land and freshwater from 4.6 per cent to reach its target of 10 per cent.
