C. Ecological Gifts Program

Where appropriate, the land trust informs potential donors about the Ecological Gifts Program including the increased tax benefits associated with making a gift under the program. Land trusts are aware of, and where necessary, advise potential donors about, the consequences of unauthorized disposal or change in land use of Ecological Gifts. The land trust ensures that properties donated under the Ecological Gifts Program are appraised and certified according to the standards of Environment Canada and, where applicable, provincial standards.
