The New Brunswick Community Land Trust (NBCLT) is a small charitable organization that was founded in 1995 to hold working land conservation easements on properties of participating landowners.

They felt that offering trust mechanisms to limit unsustainable land use practices would ensure that rural land would remain available for production and continue to contribute to the local rural economy. The NBCLT currently holds easements on over 1000 ac of land in NB. More details about working land conservation easements and the NBCLT’s current activities can be found at
