First Nations Harvesting

  1. Fur Institute of Canada is a national non-profit organization, established in 1983 on the initiative of the federal, provincial and territorial Wildlife Ministers to pursue the work of the Federal-Provincial Committee for Humane Trapping. The Fur Institute of Canada is an umbrella organization for the fur industry across Canada. We are committed to delivering information to the media, the general public and governments pertaining to the economic, social, cultural and environmental issues surrounding today’s fur trade.
  2. Trapping in Canada from the Fur Institute of Canada. Long before Europeans arrived in North America, an active trade between the Aboriginal communities of North America existed in furs and other commodities. As the fur trade has evolved over the centuries so have trapping practices. Both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal trappers have adapted their practices to reflect increased knowledge and understanding of the fur trade and the species they harvest. Today, the success of Canada's fur trade is as much recognition of a centuries-old tradition of excellence as it is a modern example of the sound application of conservation principles and sustainable development.
  3. Uu-a-thluk is an aquatic management organization enabling 15 Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations to work collaboratively with other governments and groups for the sustainable management and economic development of ocean resources in Nuu-chah-nulth Ha-houlthee (Chiefly Territories).
