In a NutshellAmerican Friends conserving Canadian lands
Our OrganizationIn the past, Americans wishing to conserve properties that they own in Canada were thwarted by tax barriers created by both US and Canadian laws. US taxpayers who donated their property (or an agreement to restrict development) to a Canadian land trust had to forego any US tax benefit. A donation to a US organization resulted in potentially disastrous Canadian capital gains taxes on any appreciation. American Friends of Canadian Land Trusts (American Friends) is a US charity, created in 2006 to remove the legal and financial barriers to permanent protection of the portion of Canada’s natural legacy owned by US taxpayers.
