Wildlife Habitat Canada

Wildlife Habitat Canada is a national, non-profit, charitable (#11929 8131 RR0001) conservation organization.

Our mission is to conserve wildlife habitat by wisely investing Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp (also known as the Canadian Duck Stamp) funds contributed by waterfowl hunters.

Every year (since 1985), a painting created by a Canadian wildlife artist is selected as the image for the Canadian Duck Stamp. With the support of the Canadian Wildlife Service of Environment and Climate Change Canada, the revenue associated with the sale of the Canadian Duck Stamp is allocated to Wildlife Habitat Canada to fund wildlife habitat conservation projects across Canada.

Since 1985, Wildlife Habitat Canada has invested over $50 million in grants to hundreds of habitat conservation projects across Canada through its grant program.

The vast majority of Canadian Duck Stamps are purchased by hunters to validate their Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit; however, Stamps are also purchased by collectors and individuals interested in contributing to the conservation of wildlife habitat in Canada.

Without habitat, there is no wildlife… it’s that simple!

Thanks to Hunters!

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.
