In addition to contributing to the work of the CCIUCN, by joining a committee, you will have the opportunity to learn from nearly 100 Canadian member organizations and individuals, including government agencies, NGOs, Indigenous-led organizations and scientific and academic institutions.

At CCIUCN annual gatherings, members from across the country come together to discuss pressing topics related to conservation. The gathering is an opportunity to develop and deepen relationships and foster collaboration across the country. Our Google Group provides a forum for organisations and individuals to share their work and progress with one another.
