The Wilderness Committee, founded in 1980, is a registered non-profit society with charitable status. With over 30,000 members from coast to coast to coast, and 40,000 additional donors and volunteers, we are Canada’s largest membership-based, citizen-funded wilderness protection group. Our head office is in Vancouver, with field offices in Victoria, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto.
We are united in our mission to protect Canada’s biodiversity through strategic research and grassroots public education. We believe that the right, the duty and the ability to act are integral to citizenship. We value wilderness, with all its natural biodiversity, as absolutely vital to the health of people, communities and the planet. We act with integrity and courage to mobilize citizens to take lawful, democratic action to defend Canada’s remaining wilderness and wildlife.
It is the combined voices of our thousands of supporters, in partnership with our dedicated board, staff, and volunteers that has allowed the Wilderness Committee to campaign successfully to protect millions of hectares of Canadian wilderness in over 40 key wilderness areas.
