There is more work to be done...
We applaud Minister John Yakabuski and his staff for these important changes and look forward to continuing our work with them. There is more work to be done with regard to the bear hunt for bear outfitters. NOTO will continue to press for changes in the following areas:
- Elimination of secondary tags that are currently available to resident bear hunters in specific wildlife management units.
- Elimination of allocation cuts to tourism businesses when a bear management area is transferred as a result of a business sale (so far we have confirmed allocations will remain intact for the first year of new ownership then a review of allocation will be conducted).
- Develop a fair and sustainable allocation model for outfitting industry.
Help us continue moving these items forward by renewing or joining NOTO and/or by making a donation to our Lobby Fund.
Call or email Executive Director, Laurie Marcil if you have any questions.
