Our Beliefs

We believe that when the heart is engaged, the mind and body will follow. That is why, since our founding in 1939, Nature Canada has been connecting Canadians to nature, trying to instil in them a nature ethic – a respect for nature, an appreciation for its wonders, and the will to act in nature’s defense.
