How it works

Your financial support allows New Acre Project to fund environmental projects on local farms and ranches across Canada. As a New Acre sponsor, you help farmers and ranchers steward their land to produce cleaner air, cleaner water and new wildlife habitats for the benefit of all Canadians.

What is a New AcreTM?

As Canada’s population grows, much of our wetlands, woodlands and grasslands is being lost. Our remaining natural spaces are at risk from land use and climate change pressures. This affects us all: the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Now, more than ever, we need to focus on this critical issue.

ALUS Canada, a Weston Family initiative, is committed to sustaining agriculture, wildlife and natural spaces, with wetland, grassland and woodland projects across Canada. Each New Acre delivers a bundle of ecosystem services, like cleaner air, cleaner water and more biodiversity, to benefit all Canadians.
