Wildlife Habitat Canada works to conserve, restore and enhance wildlife habitat in Canada. We fund habitat conservation projects, promote conservation action and foster coordination among conservation groups.
Each year (since 1985) a painting, created by a Canadian wildlife artist, is selected as the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp. The vast majority of stamps are purchased by hunters to validate their Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit. The majority of proceeds from these sales fund WHC's grant program. Stamps and prints are also purchased by individuals and collectors to raise funds for wildlife habitat conservation. In addition to the revenue from the Habitat Conservation Stamps and Prints, Wildlife Habitat Canada raises additional funds from a variety of governmental and industry partners to undertake specific activities and projects.
To promote youth connecting with nature, Wildlife Habitat Canada is partnered with the Canadian Wildlife Federation Get to Know Contest (previously the Robert Bateman Get to Know Contest) to produce the Canadian Youth Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp. Proceeds from the sale of the Youth Stamp will go towards creating a youth grant program that will fund activities aimed at engaging youth with nature.

Wildlife Habitat Canada would like to acknowledge and thank the hunting community for their valuable contributions to wildlife habitat conservation. In addition to purchasing the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp to validate their annual Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit, they pay other license fees which directly support wildlife management. Many attend conservation fundraising dinners and activities, as well as volunteer on committees and projects benefiting wildlife. Learn more...
