NAWCC Canada

The North American Wetlands Conservation Council (Canada) or NAWCC (Canada) provides a national mechanism for implementation of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan. The Council was established in 1990 by the federal Minister of the Environment and serves as the coordinating committee for developing and implementing national level wetland policies and programs in Canada.

The NAWCC (Canada) members are drawn from federal, provincial and/or territorial governments and non-government organizations. The Council operates under a Strategic Plan that envisions a Canada that has abundant and resilient wetlands, waterfowl and other wetland-dependent species that are sustained and valued.

The NAWCC (Canada) provides leadership to the Canadian Habitat and Species Joint Ventures, the regional delivery mechanism through which NAWMP goals are achieved. The Council is part of a broader leadership group that includes the North American Bird Conservation Initiative, integrating wetland management goals for waterfowl and other bird species.
