Wildlife Habitat Canada
Thank you for visiting Wildlife Habitat Canada
We are a national, non-profit, charitable conservation organization. We envision a future where Canadians share a conservation ethic that recognizes the fundamental importance of wildlife habitats that are abundant, rich and support biodiversity.
Our mission is to wisely invest funds from the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp (also known as the Canadian Duck Stamp) contributed by waterfowl hunters to conserve, enhance and restore wildlife habitat across Canada.
Without habitat, there is no wildlife.

The Green Budget Coalition makes recommendations to Canada's Government
Wildlife Habitat Canada understands the importance of meeting national commitments towards tackling climate change and the role that renewable energy development can play to safeguard Canada’s vast natural areas. We strongly support The Green Budget Coalition’s recommendations to the federal government to invest in environmentally sustainable agriculture and fisheries industries. The preservation of Canada’s biodiversity is integral to ensure the future of these leading industries and the overall health of Canadians.
WHC supports and invests in wetland and waterfowl conservation projects all across the country. Wetlands are of huge importance to the well-being of Canadians, and provide economic , social and environmental benefits, including climate change mitigation, flood control, improving water quality, and conserving biodiversity.

At the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters a team of biologists are working to gain control of a highly invasive water plant that contributes to loss of biodiversity in the Trent Seven Waterway. Native to Europe and Northwest Asia, the spread of this plant is affecting migratory species and wetland habitats for wintering species. You can volunteer to help with identifying and monitoring locations of the plants impact. Find out more HERE
Thanks to Hunters!
The support of the hunting community is integral to our work. Every year, waterfowl hunters must validate their Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit with the purchase of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp.
These funds are directly invested in conservation projects. Without this support, we would not be able to fulfill our mission. Wildlife Habitat Canada would like to acknowledge and thank the hunting community for their valuable contributions to wildlife habitat conservation.
