Q: Why do you encourage partnerships? What are "active effective partnerships"?

A: Active effective partnerships are where two or more organizations submit an application to achieve a common goal where there is mutual benefit, shared decision-making and accountability to each partner. Ideally all partners are involved in both the planning and implementation of the project.

Q: Why does the CT fund projects only in Working Landscapes and Municipal Manitoba?  

A: Working Landscapes are areas where people and significant economic activities co-exist with natural lands and water. Working Landscapes in Municipal Manitoba are a priority because they may have a higher immediate risk of loss than areas without significant economic activity. Working Landscapes have generally experienced significant loss of natural areas already and the future risk of loss remains significant.
