The 50-year old Bruce Trail Conservancy is a not-for-profit, charitable organization that acquires and conserves Niagara Escarpment land along the route of the 900-km Bruce Trail, Canada's oldest and longest footpath. With the support of thousands of donors, members and volunteers, the Bruce Trail Conservancy has been responsible for conserving thousands of acres of escarpment land to create a protected natural corridor for the Trail.

In 2018, the Bruce Trail Conservancy created 8 new nature reserves, removed 5 km of trail from the road, reached a new milestone of 66% of the Bruce Trail secured, supported the efforts of 1,400 volunteers (doing the equivalent of 75 full time jobs) and serviced 10,374 memberships.
