Creating and connecting badger habitat on Ontario farms
Join OSCIA and the Ontario Badger Project at an information session to learn about badgers and cost-share funding opportunities in support of species at risk.
Biologists estimate less than 200 badgers remain in southern Ontario. Solitary and nomadic, badgers depend on farmland for habitat in Ontario, and can have home ranges greater than 100 square kilometers. This makes on-farm stewardship critical to their conservation.

Fall-Winter 2016-2017 Program
For full program details, see the 2016-2017 BadgerWay brochure.
The BadgerWay Program aims to provide long-term protection for important American badger habitat on Ontario farmland, and is piloting the use of Conservation Agreements.
Before funding can be released, approved BadgerWay applicants are required to sign a Conservation Agreement with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). In the Agreement, participants commit to maintain the funded BMPs for a period of 5 years. ECCC agrees that the requested funding has been set aside for the approved project(s). Once signed, the participant has committed to maintaining the completed BMPs as outlined on the application form.
Copies of the Conservation Agreement are available upon request. Please contact
email@example.com to request a copy.
To be eligible for BadgerWay, you must be located in the Eligibility Area below. Full program eligibility requirements can be found in the BadgerWay brochure.
