Humane Canada’s Articles & Opinions:

The number of Canadian homes that include a pet continues to grow, and it’s imperative that our laws and our social safety net recognize and support people with pets. Recent amendments to B.C.’s Family Law Act provide guidance for people and judges involved in custody disputes to determine what’s best for all involved, including animals. Until now, the factors that determined who kept companion animals were similar to those for dividing other types of property, such as how the animal was acquired and who paid. Now, courts must consider the best interest of the animal involved. The award-winning journalist Holly Lake takes a closer look at the legislation and what you need to know about it our new Articles & Opinions feature. Click the title above to read about it.

What we do

As Canada’s federation of SPCAs and humane societies, we work to end animal cruelty, improve animal protection and promote the humane treatment of all animals.

Humane Canada’s Indigenous Affirmation

As a remote organization, Humane Canada acknowledges the many Indigenous Nations and communities that have relationships with these lands since time immemorial where our work takes place. We express our gratitude to all Indigenous communities – First Nations, Metis and Inuit, for their past, present and future leadership and stewardship. We are inspired by and grateful for Indigenous ways of knowing that teach us the interdependency and interconnectedness of all life forms, and our relationship of mutual reliance and shared destiny with other people, animals and the earth. We encourage everyone to learn more about the Indigenous Peoples who are the original stewards of the lands you reside on. To learn more please visit https://native-land.ca/.

This affirmation was in part inspired by the words of the Honourable Murray Sinclair in his speeches to the Senate of Canada regarding Indigenous ways of knowing and animal welfare.
