Helping livestock and poultry farmers affected by wildlife damage
Jan. 20, 2017 – Ontario livestock and poultry farmers now have a more consistent and transparent process for compensation when their animals are injured or killed by predatory wildlife. The newly updated Ontario Wildlife Damage Compensation Program (OWDCP) standardizes the requirements farmers need to meet to receive compensation. In addition, a new single-stage appeal process simplifies the process to address program application concerns and disputes.
The compensation rates, program guidelines and application forms are available at www.ontario.ca/predation.
