Canadian Wildlife Federation
The Canadian Wildlife Federation (Federation canadienne de la faune) is a nation-wide not for profit organization committed to conserving and inspiring the conservation of Canada's wildlife and habitats for the use and enjoyment of all. The CWF has two programs at the convention:
WILD Outside is a national conservation-based youth leadership program designed for youth ages 15 to 18. By participating in this immersive program, young Canadians will experience opportunities for personal growth while developing and encouraging their own "conservation ethic." Learning from CWF facilitators alongside their peers, youth who join the WILD Outside program will connect with other local participants in the planning and delivery of community-based conservation action projects in their own community.
The Canadian Conservation Corps (CCC) is a three-part program that presents an exciting opportunity for youth ages 18 to 30 to learn, grow and experience Canada in a unique way while having a real impact on conservation. Your adventure begins with an exciting wilderness journey followed by a field placement with national leaders in conservation. You'll then develop your own idea into a meaningful service project in your home community. Are you ready for what could be the greatest adventure of your life?
