Ottawa (December 11, 2015) – The Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) was once again named one of this country’s Top 25 charitable organizations from a list of 86,000 Canadian charities in the December 2015 edition of the Financial Post’s Charity of the Year report card. It is the second year in a row CWF has been included in the Top 25 list by the respected Canadian business publication.
Last year The Financial Post published its first annual “Charities of the Year” report card. In that edition the magazine identified CWF as one of 25 large, national charities that met the magazine’s highest standards for accountability, transparency and efficient use of donations.
“We are extremely proud to be recognized for our ongoing efforts to ensure your donations are put to work in Canada conserving Canadian wildlife,” says Wade Luzny, CWF CEO and Executive Vice-President. “It is only through the continuing support of our donors that we can continue our mission to conserve and inspire the conservation of Canada’s wildlife and habitats for the use and enjoyment of all.”

CWF recently launched its annual holiday giving campaign “Holiday Wishes – Kid Style” featuring a nationally broadcast television and radio public service announcement and interactive website. With thanks to a generous bequest made by long-time CWF supporter Renee Taillefer, donations made in support of the CWF Holiday Wishes campaign will be matched up to $25,000.
