Making Our Community Safer for People and Wildlife

Living in the Bow Valley means we need to take extra care to keep wildlife alive and our human communities safe. We are doing our part as a municipality by taking leadership to develop an Implementation and Action Plan to provide a roadmap to improve Human-Wildlife Coexistence in our community.

Our Implementation and Action Plan will include:

  • A prioritized list of actions and recommendations, and
  • Recommendations on how to create support across agencies to best manage wildlife and human use in Canmore.

To make an effective plan, we are looking for public input to inform policy and management recommendations.

Get Involved

  • Take our short and anonymous survey (open Oct.2-31, 2023) to help us understand barriers, gaps, and opportunities in two specific areas: keeping dogs on leash and removing fruit-bearing trees and shrubs.
  • This input will be considered and reflected in the final plan that Council will accept for planning purposes in early 2024.
