The new Progressive Conservative government has committed to a province-wide ALUS type program, in which landowners are paid to retain or re-construct natural areas such as wetlands, grasslands and riparian areas near rivers. The payments compensate landowners for critical ecosystem services, such as wildlife habitat, carbon sequestration, flood mitigation and preserving water quality.
