Not-For-Profit category (large organization) – CPAWS Canada
Canada’s only nationwide charity dedicated solely to the protection of public land has influenced some significant decisions in nature conservation and management of protected areas over the last five decades. CPAWS’s leadership, policy expertise and lobbying efforts led to the Government of Canada announcing $1.3 billion dollars for conservation in the 2018 federal budget—the largest investment in conservation in Canada’s history.
