Alberta Land Trust Grant Program
The Alberta Land Trust Grant Program will allow conservation of ecologically important areas to prevent habitat fragmentation,
maintain biodiversity and preserve native landscapes.
Grants will be available to land trust organizations for the purchase of conservation easements and the administration and
management of new conservation projects on private land. Conservation easements are legally binding voluntary agreements
between a landowner and a land trust. When placed on the land title, an easement restricts future surface development but
current activities, like grazing, continue. The landowner retains title. Grants through this program will not be available
to land trusts for the purchase of land.
A land trust is a not-for-profit, non-government organization established to promote biodiversity conservation on private
land. Any land trust currently operating in Alberta is eligible to apply but must provide other funding and demonstrate
that their project aligns with the government’s overall conservation objectives.
The Alberta Land Stewardship Fund was established following changes in 2010 to the Public Lands Act, resulting from the
Alberta Land Stewardship Act.
