FIC 33rd Annual General Meeting held in Northwest Territories

 


Fur Institute of Canada's 33rd Annual General Meeting held in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories from June 23-26, 2016. The meeting was attended by professionals from the private and public sectors, including wildlife control operators, trappers, fur farmers, wildlife biologists, municipal officials, aboriginal organizations and others.

The Annual General Meeting was held on Saturday, June 25th, 2016 and was followed by an evening banquet, where attendees heard from keynote speaker, Premier Bob McLeod of the Northwest Territories. Premier McLeod is a tireless advocate of sustainable use, and a former board member of the FIC who was part of the group that established and negotiated the Agreement on International Humane Trapping Standards (AIHTS). The AIHTS is the only international agreement (between Canada, Europe, Russia — and the United States by a separate understanding) that guarantees trade based on proven animal welfare standards.
