Predation and Wildlife Damage

Announcement of Program Updates effective January 1, 2017 for the Ontario Wildlife Damage Compensation Program (OWDCP)

  • The program updates are intended to clarify program expectations to ensure fair and consistent compensation levels for producers across the province.
    • The OWDCP will continue to pay 100 per cent of fair market value, including applicable premiums for registered or pregnant livestock, where reasonable evidence substantiates predation.
    • Guidelines on the program updates will be available soon; check this page for details.
