Welcome to the Northeastern Ontario Bear Management Association. We are an organized group of licenced professional Bear Management Area holders in Northeastern Ontario. Prior to our formation there was not a formal group to represent the concerns of BMA operators. Your membership and participation will add strength to the new voice of the BMA operators industry in Northeastern Ontario.

The aims and objectives of the Association are:

a. To represent licenced professional Bear Management Area holders in Northeastern Ontario and

b. Be an active partner with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry in the black bear management program and

c. Ensure sustainable black bear populations across the landscape and the ecosystems on which they rely for the continuous provision of ecological, cultural, economic and social benefits.

A BMA licence holder, their spouse or designate may be a member of the association.

As professional outfitters we are concerned with the sustainability of the bear population in Northeastern Ontario and want to work cooperatively with MNRF to develop a strategy that will allow our industry to flourish and provide economic and social benefit to Ontario while maintaining healthy bear populations. We have developed strategies to address our concerns and have presented them to the MNRF. Your support and added voice will benefit the association and all licenced BMA operators in Northeastern Ontario. If you are interested in joining and/or would like more information please let me know.
