Corporate Partners Program

Our Corporate Partners Program was initiated in 2002/03 and is a collaboration between ACA and key industry and other partners to secure ecologically sensitive lands in Alberta. The cumulative effect of habitat loss and fragmentation of our natural ecosystems is a major concern in Alberta. As industrial and municipal activities continue to expand and grow, greater emphasis is being placed on loss and alteration of habitat. Our securement efforts are guided by focus areas and ranking criteria that are developed collaboratively between ACA and our corporate partners. Corporate partnerships and collaboration with other conservation organizations allow us to maximize our conservation impact and the overall effectiveness of our securement efforts. Partnerships may consist of short- or long-term agreements. Despite an economic downturn in the past few years caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we partnered with THOR Resources Inc. this year and purchased a new conservation site in partnership with Alberta Fish & Game Association (AFGA) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). These acquisitions represent 318 acres (128.7 ha) of wildlife habitat with an estimated land value of approximately $548,375. Our goal is to continue conserving key habitats using a collaborative approach and work towards expanding these opportunities by maintaining our current corporate partnerships and developing new partnerships.
