One of the pillars of Humane Canada’s work is advocating for amendments to federal, provincial, and municipal legislation that will protect animals from cruelty and provide a legal framework to ensure that all animals are treated humanely and with respect. This work is accomplished through National Centre for the Prosecution of Animal Cruelty (NCPAC) activities.
