This survey was carried out by Statistics Canada under the sponsorship of the Federal-Provincial Wildlife Conference. It shows the considerable importance Canadians attach to wildlife and the significant roll played by wildlife resources in the national and provincial economies. The results of this survey will have important implications for managers involved in protecting wildlife and their habitats, developing resources policies, planning programmes, and in evaluating current wildlife programmes and services.
