Who we are
CPAWS is a non-profit organization that achieves its goals through education and cooperation with environmental groups, First Nations, government, industries and local communities. Our vision is to keep at least half of Canada's public land and water wild forever. We focus on protecting large, connected areas of Canada's wilderness. CPAWS has 13 local chapters throughout the country and a national office in Ottawa.
CPAWS Québec was founded in 2001. Our focus is the establishment of a true network of protected areas throughout the province, the protection of the boreal forest and the good management of existing parks and protected areas.
