Welcome to biodivcanada

Helping protect Canada's biodiversity, while encouraging the sustainable use of our biological resources, is a responsibility that all Canadians can share. With our population of more than 35 million people, we can play a role in preserving the immense natural wealth and valuable ecosystems from which we draw significant social, economic and environmental benefits. Bordered by three oceans, the second-largest nation in the world, Canada is rich in biodiversity, and we depend on it for our survival.

We invite you to celebrate the UN Decade on Biodiversity (2011-2020) and to explore this website. Learn about our country's biodiversity and actions Canada is taking to conserve our biological resources.
