Conservancy’s volunteer program a breath of fresh air

A recent Ipsos Reid poll shows that 97 per cent of Canadians agree that nature is important to their family’s well-being, and 87 per cent said they would prefer to spend family time outdoors in nature, as opposed to indoors. 

Imagine walking along a tree-lined trail, through the fresh spring air and twigs snapping under your feet – maybe you’re on an afternoon stroll with your children or out searching for songbirds. Or, perhaps you’re lending a hand in important conservation work, whilst soaking up the sun and exploring nature’s wonders! This is the kind of opportunity that awaits you when you sign up for outdoor volunteer events.

With an estimated two million lakes in Canada, covering about eight percent of our country there’s great need and responsibility to protect our freshwater. 

Water is indisputably one of our planet’s most precious resources. And with March 22 around the corner, it’s important to recognize what we’re doing in Canada to protect this vital resource.

Volunteer in any season, at any age

Volunteer in any season, at any age

In fact with over 235 events and 1,800 volunteers from coast to coast, Canadians volunteered 10,120 hours for the Nature Conservancy of Canada which means over a year’s worth of work.

Just because snow is on the ground, that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors and shelve your desire to help until it’s is green again. There are lots of winter time volunteer opportunities for all ages – just in time for the giving holiday season.

Ways you can best choose where your charitable holiday dollars go

Showing your loved ones that you care by making a charitable gift in their name resonates with the true holiday spirit of giving. But with so many options to choose from, where do you start your search for the right charity?

Sorted by sector the Charity 100 provides a helpful overview to get started with charitable gift giving. Choose your sector and find out which charity will spend your money most effectively.

Make sure your charity of choice is registered

A good first step in choosing where to give is a visit the Canada Revenue Agency’s website (www.cra.gc.ca). Here, you can check if the organization you’re interested in is registered until the Income Tax Act, meaning it’s a recognized Canadian charity.
