CPAWS is Canada’s voice for wilderness


For over 50 years, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) has been Canada’s leading grassroots voice for protected areas in the ocean and on land. CPAWS has played a key role in the establishment and management of some of Canada’s most important and vulnerable marine protected areas including British Columbia’s glass sponge reefs, the Laurentian Channel off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, St. Anns Bank in the Maritimes, and Banc-des-Américains in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Guided by a framework of reconciliation and the best available information from current science and traditional knowledge, we work collaboratively with Indigenous governments, conservation groups, scientists, industry and decision-makers to support the creation and management of effective marine protected areas from coast to coast to coast.
