An estimated two-thirds of Canada’s total land is now covered by a thick blanket of vegetation and vegetation management.
That leaves Canadians vulnerable to a range of threats, from drought to drought to floods, and a potential increase in the risk of wildfires.
Canada’s National Land Stewardship Strategy has been in place since the early 1980s, but the process has yet to fully take hold.
Today, it has become a central component of Canada the Land, a key tool for the government’s efforts to protect our most fragile land.
The aim of the strategy is to protect Canada’s environment, wildlife and natural resources from the effects of climate change, pollution and development.
The goal is to ensure that Canada’s landscape is in good shape for future generations, while also promoting sustainable agriculture, conservation and human health.
As the landscape is increasingly becoming a global hotspot, so is the threat to our land, according to a report released by the federal department of environmental assessment.
In the report, the department’s Director of Land Stewardry, Jim McLeod, says Canada’s overall land management strategy has the potential to save billions of dollars a year by ensuring that Canada has the resilience to respond to changing environmental conditions.
It also has the power to protect wildlife and nature by improving soil quality and improving water quality.
“It is critical that we protect our environment as much as possible,” says McLeod.
“That’s why it’s so important that we are protecting the landscapes that we have.”
He says that as Canada’s population increases, the number of Canadians on the planet is increasing, and that there are more and more potential threats.
“In the 21st century, Canada is more dependent on our land and more reliant on our water, and it’s not always possible to protect both,” he says.
“We need to have a better understanding of how to protect the lands and waters that we’ve established on the land, and the areas that we’re going to be using, in order to continue to be sustainable and adapt to changing conditions.”
The land stewards program The land stewards program was established in 1986 by the Government of Canada.
It aims to ensure Canada’s national land and natural environment remains in good condition for the future by protecting and restoring areas of land that are in decline or that have been damaged by development or by climate change.
The strategy has been implemented by the department since 1987, and is managed by the Department of Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change.
In 2015, the government announced that it was spending $2.5 billion on a National Land and Water Stewardships Program.
The program aims to protect Canadian lands and the natural environment by establishing policies, policies supporting the implementation of policies and measures to ensure our land is protected.
This includes ensuring that lands and water are managed according to the highest levels of scientific research, conservation, management and science, and by ensuring land management is integrated with planning, management, and implementation, as well as planning and implementation by other agencies and organizations.
The Land Stewers program is managed through two different processes.
First, the land stewards team develops a management plan, which is then published by the departments Natural Resources department.
Second, the National Land Land and Waters Stewards program, under the National Greenhouse Gas Strategy, develops a strategy for managing the natural resources and environmental assets on the lands.
The plan is then adopted by the Natural Resources and Environment Minister.
The national land stewards strategy, developed by the government, is published by Natural Resources.
In 2017, the federal government published a new plan for the Land Stewarding program, which provides more information on the program and its management processes.
It’s a step in the right direction, says Dr. David Brouwer, Director of the Centre for Land Stewaging and Land Policy at the University of Calgary.
“As governments, we have an obligation to protect lands and to have stewardship programs, so that we can manage the resources and ensure that we take care of them in a sustainable manner,” he said.
“But it’s a very, very complicated process, so it’s really important that it’s well understood.”
