Duvernay and Montney Policy and Regulatory Implementation Pilot (PRIP)
This report presents a summary of comments captured in the first phase of engagement on the Duvernay and Montney PRIP. Many traplines will be affected by development in these areas of Alberta, namely the Fox Creek - Whitecourt area. The Alberta Trappers' Association has been involved on behalf of Alberta trappers since the beginning. You can read the report here. For a map of affected traplines, click here.

Trapping is Vital in North America
The people of the United States and Canada have long counted on trapping as a source of food, clothing, and income. Trapping has always been a big part of being self-sufficient, providing for one’s family, and being a steward of the land. Read more here.

Wolverine Survey
The Alberta Trappers Association is involved in a joint venture with the Alberta Conservation Association (ACA) on a wolverine survey for the Province of Alberta. More details can be found on the ACA website (see Links). All trappers with a trapping area are encouraged to fill out this survey even if they have never seen wolverine sign on their RFMA. Send the completed survey to this office and we will forward it.
