The Canadian Wildlife Federation completed the 2016-17 fiscal year with a surplus of $375,000, and, once again, received an unqualified audit for this period. CWF efficiency ratios were within guidelines of the Canada Revenue Agency. The surplus from this year will be invested in future conservation programs.
Investments in charitable programs were $12.2 million. This investment was used to strengthen programming in areas of freshwater habitat conservation, endangered species and large marine animal protection, education programming, pollinator habitat and other terrestrial conservation.
