American Friends of Canadian Conservation

The American Friends of Canadian Conservation partners with Canadian conservation organizations, including the Comox Valley Land Trust, and American owners of ecologically significant lands to protect Canada’s natural lands, clean water, abundant habitat and the quality of life for citizens of both countries.

Americans have been coming to Vancouver Island for generations. Many want to save ecologically significant lands they know and love for future generations.

AFCC has special tax status in both Canada and the U.S. that encourages U.S. taxpayers to protect Canadian property.

Together, Comox Valley Land Trust and American Friends provide the professional expertise needed to complete complex cross-border land transactions involving Americans protecting important natural lands. Comox Valley Land Trust relies on contributions from people who value the clear waters of our lakes and streams, forested shorelines, fish, birds and other wildlife, and the region’s natural heritage.
