The Massawippi Foundation and the Massawippi Conservation Trust acknowledge that lands that we have protected in perpetuity stand on the unceded ancestral territory of the Wabanaki Nation (Abenaki), the Ndakina.  We acknowledge that their history and relationship to this land and the water that flows through it, inspire us and guide our conservation work in our role as stewards of the land.

Who We Are

The Massawippi Foundation (FMF) supports activities that benefit the inhabitants of the Massawippi Valley and contribute to the preservation of the unique ecosystems in the region. The Fondation Massawippi Foundation is about people helping people. The dollars to fund our work come from individuals, foundations and corporations that support our goals

The Massawippi Conservation Trust (MCT) was established to conserve land adjacent to Lake Massawippi and its tributaries and provide stewardship services in perpetuity.

The sister organizations are focused on the areas of North Hatley, Saint Catherine de Hatley, Ayer’s Cliff, Hatley and Canton de Hatley.
