The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) is Canada’s only nationwide charity dedicated solely to the protection of our public land and water, and ensuring our parks are managed to protect the nature within them.
In the past 50+ years, we’ve played a lead role in protecting over half a million square kilometres – an area bigger than the entire Yukon Territory!
Our vision is to protect at least half of our public land and water so that future generations can experience Canada’s irreplaceable wilderness.
As Canada’s voice for Animal Welfare, we drive positive, progressive change to end animal cruelty, improve animal protection and promote the humane treatment of all animals.
Creating impact in the areas of Farm Animal welfare, Companion Animal welfare and working to update Canada’s outdated criminal code are where your donation will go to work immediately.
Together, we can ensure that important and impactful work is accomplished to help every animal in Canada enjoy a life worth living.
