We want to understand your vision and capacity!

Canada is home to vast, healthy, and resilient forest ecosystems that support our well-being and help absorb carbon pollution. Planting trees is a nature-based climate solution that can reduce our net greenhouse gas emissions while providing other benefits such as better air and water quality, lower risk of wildland fire to rural communities, and support for biodiversity. We’re committed to planting 2 billion trees over the next 10 years - one of the pathways to achieving our goal of net-zero greenhouse emissions by 2050. This is a tall order – see how we’ll get there together.
