GENERAL INFORMATION

SITE INDEX

This web site has been  created as a public service by R.C.S. Animal Care.  Every reasonable effort has been made to ensure the currency and accuracy of the information presented at the Site.  However, R.C.S. Animal Care assumes no responsibility and Users of this Site should verify the information from other sources prior to making decisions or acting upon it.

Up until a few years ago, anyone interested in raising wildlife was at liberty to do so without training; however, effective January 1, 2006, as a result of the latest EBR Policy, MNR regulations now require that all wildlife custodians take appropriate training and attend courses.

In February, 2003, and not necessarily a requirement at the time, I decided to take the Basic Skills Wildlife Rehabilitation Workshop, offered by  the Ontario Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Network (OWREN).  In January 1, 2006, it was mandated that all new wildlife custodians complete the Ontario Rabies Vector Species Course (RVS Course) prior to being authorized to rehabilitate rabies vector species (Fox/raccoon/bats).

Excellent training opportunities are also offered through the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association.  Although located in the US, their conferences and training are second to none and offer accredited certification in wildlife rehabilitation.

Through the Ministry of Natural Resources, training is also available together with examination material.  Copies of guidelines, workbooks and exam materials will be available through the MNR website shortly.
