Anthropogenic food is not healthy: Human food is not healthy for wildlife, and they do not need food from us to survive. Foxes and other wildlife have specialized diets, and they can become malnourished (or even die) if fed the wrong foods. They also can’t distinguish between their food and items like wrappers or foil, which can make them sick.
Welcome to Coyote Watch Canada
Coyote Watch Canada is a Federal Not-For-Profit community-based, wildlife organization which advocates positive human wildlife experiences. Our successful community coexistence framework is achieved through education, research, mediation, intervention, and conflict resolution.
Coyote Watch Canada is headquartered on land that is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Agreement. Together we must strive to honour, respect, and protect these sacred lands, waters, wildlife, and natural resources in that the Dish may never be empty for the generations that follow. These lands are also home to many First Nations, Métis and Inuit people.

The Ontario government is attempting to allow new and the transfer of licenses for trial and train areas through legislation in Bill 91. Though a public consultation through the Environmental Registry of Ontario (until May 18, 2023) is seeking input on this issue, a portion of Bill 91 is dedicated to enshrining access to these licenses in law.
Coexisting With Coyotes
Eastern coyote and fox sightings are not uncommon throughout Ontario and across North America. This vital keystone species has been an essential aspect in the landscape for over a century.
