Oak Hammock Marsh, Man.—Get a home for your family, give a home to wildlife. A new preferred mortgage program connects habitat conservation with home buying.
Ducks Unlimited Canada is partnering with Street Capital Financial Corporation to offer preferred mortgage program benefits to DUC supporters. Through this affinity partnership, DUC supporters will benefit from valuable savings, while helping contribute to important wetland conservation efforts.
“We’re excited about this partnership with Street Capital Financial Corporation. Our supporters do so much to benefit wildlife and the environment. This is a way to give something back by offering an opportunity to our supporters for significant value and savings,” says Jamie Fortune, DUC’s Chief Operating Officer.
As a registered charity, DUC relies on the support of conservation-minded people to conserve, restore and manage wetlands across the country. Wetlands are highly productive ecosystems that provide habitat for hundreds of species of wildlife, including many that are endangered or at risk. They also provide essential environmental services like naturally filtering water, reducing flooding, protecting shorelines and storing carbon. Despite these benefits, up to 80 acres (32 ha)—the equivalent of 45 soccer fields—of wetlands are lost every day across Canada.
Street Capital Financial Corporation is Canada’s fourth largest non-bank lender providing residential mortgages through select independent affinity partners like the one with DUC.
Through partnerships like the one with Street Capital Financial Corporation, DUC can continue vital conservation work to prevent this loss, while providing benefits to supporters who share this mission.
Ducks Unlimited Canada is the leader in wetland conservation. A registered charity, DUC partners with government, industry, non-profit organizations and landowners to conserve wetlands that are critical to waterfowl, wildlife and the environment. Learn more at ducks.ca.
