The preservation of biodiversity requires the protection of endangered species' habitats. In Canada, approximately 60% of these habitats are located on private lands. We start by analysing the obstacles to the protection of endangered species' habitats, with special attention to the compensation of private property owners affected by conservation efforts. After briefly reviewing the main measures adopted in Canada to protect natural habitats on private lands, we propose some conservation mechanisms that would not excessively burden public budgets. These measures should be discussed in the next proposal for a Canadian endangered species act. La préservation de la biodiversité nécessite la protection des habitats des espèces menacées. Au Canada, environ 60% de ces habitats sont situés sur des terres privées. Nous examinons la problématique de protection de ces habitats et notamment la question de la compensation des propriétaires privés. Nous analysons ensuite les principales mesures utilisées au Canada pour préserver les habitats naturels, et nous proposons des mécanismes de protection qui permettraient de dédommager les propriétaires terriens affectés tout en limitant les dépenses publiques. Ces mécanismes devraient être discutés lors de la prochaine proposition de loi sur la protection des espèces menacées au Canada.
