The Land Conservancy of British Columbia


The Land Conservancy of British Columbia

TLC The Land Conservancy of British Columbia (commonly abbreviated to TLC) is a not-for-profit, charitable land trust based in British Columbia, Canada. It was formed in 1997, with strong influences from The National Trust of England, Ireland and Wales, with whom it partakes in staff exchanges.

TLC performs acquisitions of property and land around British Columbia, and restores and develops them into publicly-viewable heritage sites. One of its primary goals is to protect areas of natural beauty within British Columbia.

TLC draws much of its finances from membership revenue. It is operated by both fully-paid staff and a large network of volunteers.

Projects

The Land Conservancy has protected over 100 properties throughout the province, encompassing over 86,000 acres (350 km²). This has been accomplished through the use of covenants, land purchases and agreements with local and provincial governments.
