Financial Picture

CPAWS works hard to maximize the proportion of revenue spent on our wilderness work. Our goal is a sustainable financial foundation for our conservation efforts, and sustained protection of Canada's wilderness.

Each year, our 13 chapters and the national office devote over 70 per cent of our budget to conservation and education, and spend less than 15 per cent on fundraising costs.
