Check back to this page regularly to keep up-to-date on the projects and activities that the National Trust is getting involved with.
Most of our work at the moment, in these early days of the organization revolves around the necessary building blocks to establish an organization. A constitutional and legal framework, operating systems such as financial controls and membership application procedures, marketing and communications tools such as this website and , and other basics are taking much of our time and energy. Progress however, is being made as the pieces are beginning to fall into place and we look forward to moving on to more outreach and more conservation work.

In particular, the National Trust for Land & Culture (British Columbia) has now been established and is operational as a charitable organization. For more details, please see the BC website at: ntlcbc.ca
The National Trust has partnered with the Fountain of Peace Project to sponsor an intriguing and exciting conference to be held in Victoria, BC, in September 2014. This summit will bring together children (age 10-14) from around the globe for four days of exploration, learning and sharing of experiences about finding personal peace in a chaotic world.
About 120 children from 10-15 countries will join with 100 children from across Canada and with 100 local children to participate in programs and activities to help them find ways to connect with the natural world around them, with their communities and with each other and, in so doing, to find ways to bring greater levels of peace to their lives, their community and their world.
Members of the National Trust organizing team have had a number of consultations with individuals and groups who are concerned with the conservation of several specific properties that are currently at risk. While we are not yet in a position to be addressing any of these conservation projects directly, we are continuing to keep a close watch on circumstances as they develop and will stay in contact with those involved. For more details of these projects, as they progress, please check back to this page or to our “News & Updates” page.
