From there "about us" online -

Our Objectives

To search out, preserve, perpetuate, study, and encourage the cultivation of heirloom and endangered varieties of food crops by:

searching out heirloom and endangered varieties, particularly Canadian varieties;
encouraging and enabling gardeners and farmers to grow, maintain, and disseminate these varieties through the annual seed exchange project;
establishing and maintaining curatorial collections of Canadian varieties;
co-operating with individuals, groups, and institutions in Canada and internationally in aid of maintaining, supplementing, and salvaging existing collections of heirloom and endangered varieties;
encouraging commercial seed companies, nurseries, and related businesses to grow, maintain, and propagate, and commercially distribute these varieties as a means of perpetuating them.
