Welcome to the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Region!

The Clayoquot Biosphere Trust (CBT) is a non-profit organization that seeks to enhance the vitality of local communities and ecosystems through research, education, and cultural programs. As the local community foundation we provide grants to communities, organizations, and individuals to achieve the interconnected aspects of sustainability – cultural, social, economic, and environmental – in the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere.

Our Vision

The community of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Region will live sustainably in a healthy ecosystem, with a diversified economy and strong, vibrant and united cultures while embracing the Nuu-chah–nulth First Nations “living” philosophies of Iisaak (living respectfully), Qwa’ aak qin teechmis (life in the balance), and Hishuk ish ts’awalk (everything is one and interconnected).
