Wildlife Policy

Policies and procedures are designed to guide statutory decision-makers when exercising their decision-making authority, and to provide staff with direction on how to proceed when carrying out specific duties related to their position functions.

In general terms, policies provide high level information on the principles and direction the ministry wishes to take with respect to a particular topic or issue. They are often quite broad in their context. Procedures, on the other hand, are more detailed, and generally describe processes to assist decision-makers in settling on final decisions, or detailing how staff should implement those decisions.

Please note: The documents on this site do not represent the complete set of ministry policies and procedures.  As older policies and procedures are updated, they will be added to this site. Documents may have different ministry names, logos and layouts depending on when they were developed.
