Canada Commits $2.3 Billion to 25% Protection by 2025: Funding for Indigenous Protected Areas is Necessary

The Government of Canada has committed to conserving 25% of lands and 25% of oceans in Canada by 2025. In the 2021 Federal Budget, Canada committed $2.3 billion to conserve up to 1 million square kilometers more land and inland waters — including through Indigenous Protected Areas and national wildlife areas — to achieve Canada’s target. If divided amongst the provinces and territories, BC’s portion of the funding would be between $200 and $300 million. Instead of subsidizing controversial climate disasters like $20 billion tar sands pipelines, Canada can redirect funding to Indigenous Protected Areas, and a just transition for industry workers, to protect the most threatened and valuable ancient forests.
