Make the most of the Ecological Gifts Program.
Habitat loss and degradation are the greatest threats to biodiversity in Canada today. Thanks to Environment Canada’s Ecological Gifts Program, with its unique tax advantages, more Canadians can leave a legacy for tomorrow and receive a tax break today.
Environment Canada seems an unlikely partner in saving taxes, but its Ecological Gifts Program can do just that. With the help of the program, Don and Heather Elliott have conserved a rare seven-hectare woodlot northeast of Barrie, Ontario into perpetuity. “Don wanted to protect a small corner of the world to ensure future generations could experience the same joy he had as a child while playing in the woodlot,” explains Heather.
