IHTS certified traps – USE NOT REQUIRED but recommended

For the following species and categories of traps, the obligation to only use traps “certified under the Agreement on International Humane Treatments Standards (IHTS)” is not yet in effect. The date of the entry into force, if applicable, will be known at least three years ahead of time and may vary from one species to the next.

Starting in the 2018-2019 trapping season, IHTS-certified killing traps and live capture traps will be compulsory for bobcat. Compulsory use of IHTS-certified killing traps for weasels has been postponed to the 2018-2019 trapping season. For beavers (cages) and wolves, live capture traps will be compulsory from the beginning of the 2020-2021 trapping season.

In the meantime, the traps currently authorized for these species continue to be authorized. Nevertheless, we are recommending the use of the following IHTS certified traps:
