Environment and Climate Change Canada

Wildlife Habitat Canada (WHC) is a national, charitable not-for-profit organization established in 1984 by Environment Canada, provincial wildlife agencies and conservation organizations.

Through a legislative arrangement with Environment Canada, Wildlife Habitat Canada receives the revenues from the sale of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp, purchased primarily by waterfowl hunters to validate their Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permits. Each year, Wildlife Habitat Canada receives this financial support through a contribution agreement with Environment and Climate Change Canada. This endeavour supports Environment and Climate Change Canada’s responsibility for the protection and conservation of habitat, particularly for the conservation of waterfowl pursuant to the Migratory Birds Convention Act.
