PRACTICE

E. Public Policy

The land trust may engage in the public policy debate at the federal, provincial and/or municipal level (such as supporting or opposing legislation, advocating for sound land use policy, and/or endorsing public funding of conservation) provided that it complies with federal and provincial lobbying limitations and reporting requirements. All public policy activities must relate to the land trust's mandate and field of operations and should comply with the Canada Revenue Agency's limitations. Land trusts may not engage in political campaigns or endorse candidates for public office.
