Welcome to the Canadian Committee for the IUCN.

The Canadian Committee for the International Union for Conservation of Nature (CCIUCN) exists to bring people and ideas together with the common goal of protecting biodiversity in Canada.

The CCIUCN serves as a vehicle to consult on conservation policy in Canada and to promote policies consistent with those of IUCN. We also help to facilitate the involvement of our members in IUCN global activities including participation in the World Conservation Congress.

Current priorities:

  1. Pathway to Canada Target 1
  2. Diminishing the Current Biodiversity Communications Deficit in Canada 
  3. Engagement in the Post-2020 Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD) Strategy Plan 
  4.  #NatureForAll

Upcoming events:

The CCIUCN AGM will occur at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, Ontario on Thursday, January 24, 2019.
