Based in Ottawa, Ontario, the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS) is a charitable organization originally founded in 1957 by individual humane societies and SPCAs (Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) across Canada. Today, we remain a membership-based federation representing more than 50 municipal animal welfare organizations, as well as several provincial humane societies and SPCAs. Our role is to end companion animal overpopulation, end intensive confinement and painful practices for farm animals and improve the legal framework for Canada’s animals. We work to unite and strengthen our member societies, helping them save the lives of more animals in their communities.
