The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals
The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals (APFA) has the distinction of being one of the oldest animal protection groups in Canada. Since 1953, APFA (also known as Fur-Bearer Defenders) has been working to end the commercial fur trade. We also provide practical hands-on assistance to municipalities across Canada seeking to minimize human-wildlife conflicts, particularly related to beavers and coyotes. A dedicated volunteer Board of Directors manages our society and our work is entirely supported by donations.
