Canadians love nature and depend on it. Nature is the source of the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. Nature protection can also provide more than 30% of our global climate solutions. That’s why the Government of Canada has doubled its protected nature area in Canada’s lands and oceans.

On June 22, 2019, the Minister of International Development and Minister of Status of Women and Gender Equality and the Member of Parliament for Peterborough-Kawartha, Maryam Monsef, announced today, on behalf of the Minister of the Environment and of Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, that the Government of Canada has invested $ 215,000 to protect the Cation Wildlife Preserve in partnership with the Kawartha Land Trust. This represents an additional 270 hectares of protected nature in Canada.

Funding for this project comes from the largest investment in the nature of Canada’s history – $ 1.3 billion from Natural Heritage Canada. Partner organizations provide matching contributions for each project, such as the Cation Wildlife Preserve.

These efforts are just part of a broad spectrum of conservation work being done across the country that will help Canada achieve its 2020 conservation goals, move toward reconciliation with Aboriginal peoples, protect and protect restore species at risk and enhance biodiversity for the benefit of all.

We would like to thank the Kawartha Land Trust for all the hard work its staff spends on protecting our nature. The Government of Canada looks forward to working together to ensure a bright future for our children and grandchildren.
