Over the long term, EALT intends to be a positive, proactive organization seeking opportunities and solutions for natural area conservation in partnership with all levels of government. This will require it to:
- seek partnerships with municipal governments in land securement by applying creative ways to secure natural areas sites well beyond the traditional land trust tools of gifts and sales
- strengthen the institutional framework in which land trusts operate within Canada.
EALT also intends to be open to partnerships with many other individuals and organisations to realise its goals.
