About CFHS

The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies is the national voice of humane societies and SPCAs. We bring together those who work with, and care for animals to promote respect and humane treatment toward all animals.

Since we were founded in 1957, we’ve earned our solid reputation and enviable credibility as the ‘go-to’ national voice on animal welfare issues for industry, media, government, non-governmental organizations, and the public.

We work collaboratively and cooperatively with key stakeholders based on the premise that we can have a greater impact creating positive change by being a part of the process instead of being apart from it.

We drive positive, progressive change nationally to end animal cruelty and improve animal protection through the enactment of effective legislation.

We provide leadership on animal welfare issues and ensure these crucial messages are heard and understood from coast to coast.

Our approach to improving the welfare of animals makes us a respected voice and key player in any national discussion on the use of animals.
