Data Sharing

We encourage all biodiversity data holders to contribute their species and ecosystem data to NatureServe Canada and our network of provincial and territorial Conservation Data Centres (CDCs).  By doing so you will contribute to Canada’s publicly managed knowledge base regarding the location and status of Canada’s rare and threatened biodiversity, thus ensuring that your biodiversity information will inform biodiversity science and conservation decision-making.

NatureServe Canada works with its member CDCs to ensure that our biodiversity data is managed and distributed responsibly, according to provincial, territorial and federal policies and procedures. 

Please contact us if you would like to discuss developing a national data license or data sharing agreement to enable the two-way flow of biodiversity information between your organization and the NatureServe Canada Network of CDCs.
