CPAWS Wildlands League is a not-for-profit environmental organization that works with governments (provincial, federal, Aboriginal and municipal), communities, scientists, the public and resource industries to the protect public lands and resources in Ontario.
CPAWS Wildlands League is a not-for-profit charity that has been working in the public interest to protect public lands and resources in Ontario since 1968, beginning with a campaign to protect Algonquin Park from development. We have extensive knowledge of land use in Ontario and a history of working on progressive conservation initiatives. We have specific experience with impacts of industrial development on boreal forests and wildlife that depend on them, as well as dedicated protected areas establishment and management expertise.
Our work is dynamic. We don’t just talk about an area or an issue. We get to know it inside and out. We understand the players, the pressure points and make sure our contributions add value. We are a small yet highly effective charity that brings scientific rigor, credibility and creative solutions forward. And we help connect people with nature through local polar bear swims and paddles in the Rouge.
CPAWS Wildlands League is one of thirteen chapters of The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, working across Canada to protect our wilderness.
