Successful cross border conservation transactions, involving U.S. taxpayers who own important Canadian natural lands, requires an understanding of tax laws, real estate practices and conservation procedures from both countries. For more than a decade, American Friends of Canadian Conservation (and its supporters and partners) have invested in learning how to correctly navigate all the steps in this bi-national process. One way we accomplish our conservation mission is by sharing what we’ve learned through our partnership-based transactions; by teaching at conferences; producing workshops for landowners and their advisors; and creating a library of fact sheets on topics related to cross border conservation. You can access some of these resources below along with other documents and links you may find useful.
American Friends of Canadian Conservation is delighted to announce the availability of Save Some Green: A Handbook for US Taxpayers. For years, Canadian conservation organizations and landowners from the US (and the lawyers, accountants and financial planners who advise them) have been searching for definitive information about bi-national incentives for conserving Canada’s natural heritage.
