Migratory bird hunting: our field enforcement officers

December 23, 2019 – Montréal, Québec – Environment and Climate Change Canada

Effective enforcement of Canada’s wildlife and environmental protection laws is one of the measures Environment and Climate Change Canada has taken to honour its commitment to maintaining clean air and water and conserving wildlife species and their habitats.

With the opening of the migratory bird hunting season last September, enforcement officers were in the field to ensure that hunters were in full compliance with regulations. In two separate operations, one on the North Shore of Montréal and the other on the Magdalen Islands, enforcement officers, in collaboration with Québec wildlife conservation officers and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, carried out several actions.

Below is an overview of these two operations:
