Welcome to the Canadian Committee for the IUCN

The Canadian Committee for the IUCN (CCIUCN) exists to bring people, organizations and ideas together with the common goal of protecting biodiversity in Canada. By supporting Canadian biodiversity, we can ensure a brighter future for wildlife and the habitats in which they live.

Our Mission

Working together to inform, connect and promote conservation actions and policies in Canada that advance the work of the IUCN.

Our Vision

A world where Canadians value and conserve nature.

What We Do

The primary purpose of the CCIUCN is to provide a voice and networking platform for Canadians involved in IUCN work.  Through the CCIUCN, individuals and organizations that support the IUCN in Canada actively share information and create opportunities for collective action.  As a community, we have a particular interest in working intergenerationally and with diverse cultures (Indigenous and non-Indigenous) to ensure different world views and perspectives are represented. As a highly supportive and collegial non-profit organization, the CCIUCN aims to inspire its members to showcase the diversity of conservation work taking place in Canada through its Annual General Meeting and through its various communication channels.  In addition, the CCIUCN is a hub for sharing applicable global IUCN news, information and expertise.
