Canada’s Land Watch

2.6 Million Acres and Counting

It's what we did in the past, and what we do in the present, that defines our future. Since 1962, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has secured over 2.6 million acres of land that will forever provide a home for wildlife, an escape from the city, and a vital resource that cleans the air we breathe and the water we drink.

Toshiba is working alongside the Nature Conservancy of Canada to help ensure that those lands and the rich biodiversity within them remain protected for future generations to enjoy.

It Takes a Mountain of Data to Protect Our Lands

Toshiba facilitated the development of a technology that redefined the future of Canadian conservation — the Land Information System (LIS) — the system of record for the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s entire conservation program. Maps of properties, details about species at risk, threats to habitat, and other critical records can all be stored and accessed with ease. It’s a one‑of‑a‑kind system, and it’s at everybody’s fingertips.

We have reached a point where we can work simultaneously at all levels — nationally, provincially and locally. Who knows what we could do in 10, 15 or 20 years?”
