Birds protected in Canada under the Migratory Birds Convention Act .: CW69-1/1-1970E-PDF

"Each province has general jurisdiction over wildlife within its boundaries. The Government of Canada is, however, responsible for wildlife in national parks and in bird sanctuaries established by regulations related to the Migratory Birds Convention Act. This act was passed in 1917 to enable Canada to fulfill obligations incurred under the Migratory Birds Treaty with the United States of America and empowers the Governor-in Council to make regulations necessary to protect migratory birds which inhabit Canada for all, or part, of the year"--Foreword.
