The Value of Natural Capital in Settled Areas of Canada




This report urges governments to develop a system that puts a price tag on the services nature provides in our settled areas, before it is too late. Four case studies for the report, in British Columbia's Lower Fraser Valley, Manitoba and Saskatchewan's Upper Assiniboine River Basin, Ontario's Grand River Watershed and Prince Edward Island's Mill River Watershed demonstrate that protecting natural capital in the settled areas of Canada may save society hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars every year.
