The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC)

 

The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) was created in 1977 as a result of a recommendation at the Federal-Provincial Wildlife Conference held in 1976. It arose from the need for a single, official, scientifically sound, national classification of wildlife species at risk. In 1978, COSEWIC designated its first species and produced its first list of Canadian species at risk. In 2002, COSEWIC celebrated 25 years of science and knowledge for species at risk in Canada. On June 5th 2003, the Species at Risk Act (SARA) was proclaimed. SARA establishes COSEWIC as a legal entity, ensuring that species will continue to be assessed under a rigorous and independent scientific process.

 

The Canadian Wildlife Service, Environment Canada, provides full administrative and financial support to the COSEWIC Secretariat.
