Annual Report

As a trusted Canadian-registered charity which has been operating since 1993, Alberta Institute of Wildlife Conversation (AIWC) is permitted by federal and provincial governments to care for wildlife in need. In addition, we are an accredited veterinary hospital through the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association, which allows us to provide high standards of care to our wildlife patients.

We are funded entirely by donations. We know that you give to make a difference to injured and orphaned wildlife. By maximizing each dollar we receive, we are demonstrating that we take this commitment seriously and we honour your generous donation.
