Canada offers unrivalled opportunities for big game hunting.
In the vast wilderness areas extending from the northern parts of the provinces into the Northwest and Yukon Territories, game animals both big and small live and multiply. They are the mainstay of our native citizens and provide enjoyment for all of Canada’s people and her guests from abroad.
The advance of civilization has driven game animals from most of the southern parts of the provinces but there are still districts well-stocked with game throughout the length and breath of Canada which are accessible by railways, highways, and other means of transport.
Both the Federal and Provincial Governments are keenly interested in the conservation of wildlife resources and have enacted laws for their protection which have been so successfully applied that many famous hunting areas are better stocked with game today than they were thirty or forty years ago.
Canada welcomes as her guests sportsmen from other lands, and asks only that they show their appreciation of the privilege of access to her game field by obeying the hunting laws and observing the ethics of sportsmanship.
In the following pages will be found a brief description of the game resources of Canada. Owing to the vast area of the country and the diversity of conditions prevailing in the various provinces, the information given must necessarily be of a very general nature. Additional information on hunting in the respective provinces may be obtained from the sources listed herein.
