Indigenous-Led Nature Conservation

Indigenous peoples have stewarded these lands and waters since time immemorial. That’s why we launched the Indigenous Guardians pilot in 2017, and helped establish Canada’s first-ever Indigenous Protected and Conserved Area.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Work with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis partners to support new Indigenous Guardians programs and establish new Indigenous Guardians Networks.
  • Support Indigenous communities to build capacity to establish more IPCAs.
