Canada wide distribution of PIJAC Canada's Exotic Animal Policy



 We have received confirmation that the Federation of Canadian Municipalities will be distributing our Exotic Animal Policy to their membership, which currently stands at close to 2,000 municipalities.  This move is in response to our invitation to the Federation to make use of the policy as a resource for their members.  We are delighted to be able to provide this to the FCM and look forward to potential collaborative opportunities in the future.


 In addition to our efforts with the federal and provincial municipal unions the Council has also been working our connections within the exotic animal world.   PIJAC Canada took part in the Western Reptile Expo in Red Deer Alberta recently.  Board member  Rob Church of Calgary, spoke with many families, breeders and hobbyists about the Council’s Reptile Certification program, safe handling poster series and of course, the Exotic Animal Policy.  “As a store owner, it was great to see so many people interested in reptiles and I was extremely impressed with the amount of educational materials on care available to the public.”    We will continue our efforts over the coming months to support exotic pet ownership by promoting education and collaboration at every opportunity.
