Investing in Indigenous conservation to create a more resilient economy
We can deliver the same benefits here in Canada by making Indigenous-led conservation a key part of the country’s economic recovery plan.
Elders teach us that if we take care of the land, the land will take care of us—all of us. That’s why strong, Indigenous communities will bolster nearby towns and cities across the North and sustain the clean air and water and plentiful plants and animals all Canadians depend on, writes Steven Nitah.
