Canada’s Invasive Wild Pig Strategy

Canada’s Invasive Wild Pig Strategy will provide Canada-wide leadership to facilitate eradication of invasive wild pigs by enhancing the understanding of the problem, educating on best management practices, coordinating efforts across regions, and systematically tracking progress toward the shared goals. This is a 10-year strategy with intent to review the document every five years.

This strategy is considered a living document and will evolve and adapt over time and with additional input. Engagement with Indigenous people to incorporate their knowledge and concerns regarding the management of wild pigs into this strategy has begun but has not yet been included in this iteration. Implementation of this strategy includes a commitment to working with Indigenous governments and organizations to collaboratively incorporate perspectives from their communities. It is only through mutual understanding and cooperation with Indigenous communities that wild pigs can be effectively managed.

Canada’s Wild Pig Strategy was written in consultation with partners representing the following organizations:

  • Canadian Pork Council
  • Canadian Food Inspection Agency
  • Animal Health Canada
  • Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

  • Canadian Council on Invasive Species
