In ​Land We Trust

The Comox Valley Land Trust is a community-based, not-for-profit organization that works to protect and conserve the ecologically significant land and wildlife habitat of the Comox Valley region. The Comox Valley Land Trust operates two programs: the Comox Valley Conservation Partnership (CVCP) program and the Land Protection Program.

Land Protection Program

With so much lost and so little remaining, the preservation of the Comox Valley’s sensitive ecosystems is a high priority. To maintain biodiversity and livability, the CVLT’s Land Protection Program continues to work with governments on sustainable development policies and takes direct action to protect strategic private properties for conservation in perpetuity.

Pieter Rutgers • President

Comox Valley Conservation Partnership

The CVCP was formed in 2008, after concern was raised that there was no regional plan in the Comox Valley to prioritize and protect sensitive ecosystems on private land. The CVCP brings together local community-based groups and other stakeholders to support their projects and provide a voice for the value of conservation in our natural areas. The CVCP is administered by a Program Coordinator under the direction of the CVLT Executive Director and the CVLT Board of Directors.

The CVCP operates within the geographical region of the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC. 65,000 residents call this valley home and it includes the City of Courtenay, Town of Comox, Village of Cumberland, Comox Valley Regional District and the K’omoks First Nation

Tsolum Commons

In 2016 the owners of the property donated the land to the CVLT who has in turn leased it to the CVRD as a public park. The property protects important fish habitats, riparian areas, and mature forests, which contribute to the health of the greater Tsolum River ecosystem.
