Our Mission:

The Canal Flats Wilderness Club (CFWC) supports East Kootenay Fish, Wildlife and Outdoor Resources. The club was formed so that locals would have a say in decisions made about land use, hunting and fishing regulations, access management, and habitat enhancement opportunities as well as stewardship opportunities and offering a safe place for locals to practice shooting. As such the CFWC has completed many habitat enhancement projects, headed 2 major sheep projects as well as helping to transplant sheep from here to many other locations, provided input into management strategies including the recent Whiteswan lake management plan. In addition, they are nearly finished building a shooting range facility that will include 100,300, pistol and shotgun range opportunities.

Our Vision:

To ensure long term management of East Kootenay fish, wildlife and outdoor resources. To arouse a respect and recognition of all residents for fish, wildlife and outdoor resources. To obtain and maintain public access to forest and recreational areas. To co-operate with other clubs with the same objectives in order to prevent land, water, and air pollution. To encourage firearms shooting in our community with a view towards improved marksmanship and safe firearms handling. To promote appreciation of sportsmanship in the light of fish and wildlife regulations and promote the concept of fair chase.
