Shared Legacy Partnership is a cooperative working group led by the RM of Stuartburn and The Nature Conservancy of Canada along with partners Sunrise Corner Economic Development and Province of Manitoba.

RM of Stuartburn

As per the Manitoba Municipal Act, the purposes of a municipality like the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn are: to provide good government; to provide services, facilities or other things that, in the opinion of the council of the municipality, are necessary or desirable for all or a part of the municipality; and, to develop and maintain safe and viable communities. As such, the RM of Stuartburn has been a member of the Shared Legacy Partnership since its inception to help build awareness and share Stuartburn’s unique nature with future generations.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is a private, non-profit organization, considered Canada’s leading national land conservation organization. This important project, led by NCC, will aim to improve habitat, reduce threats to species at risk, and engage community members who have cared for these habitats for generations.

Sunrise Corner Economic Development

Sunrise Corner is the geographic area covered by the Rural Municipalities of Piney and Stuartburn in Manitoba’s southeast corner – the place where the sun first rises in our beautiful province and nature shines. Sunrise Corner is also the economic development office that was formed through a partnership of the two municipalities – a forward-thinking initiative to build awareness of our region where, truly, untapped opportunity shines. We contribute to the Shared Legacy Partnership from tourism marketing and economic development perspectives.

Province of Manitoba

The Manitoba Conservation Data Centre (MBCDC) is a storehouse of information on Manitoba’s biodiversity – its plant and animal species, as well as its natural plant communities. The MBCDC functions under the umbrella of NatureServe and NatureServe Canada, a network of over 60 similar centres throughout Canada and the United States. This network, along with a central team of scientists, maintains science-based information about the biodiversity of North America.
