Our Cause

On February 2, 1984, an association of Conservation and Hunter Education Instructors was incorporated and registered with the Societies Act as a not-for-profit organization. In addition, on January 1, 1991, our organization received its registered charity status. We are the Alberta Hunter Education Instructors' Association.

The Association

AHEIA is a not-for-profit organization that works to educate the public on the importance of protecting the places and wildlife cherished by Albertans. AHEIA is the only registered charity in Alberta that provides this type of conservation and outdoor education to the public – and has proudly done so since 1964.

Goals and Objectives

  • To promote the highest standard of sportsman behaviour.
  • To teach and promote the ethical and humane treatment of fish, wildlife, and all other living creatures.
  • To support the improvement of Conservation Education.
  • To promote Hunter Education curriculum and instruction development.
  • To promote communication among all instructors in the Conservation Education and Hunter Education Programs.
  • To promote affiliation with Conservation and Hunter Education interest groups.

HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS

Since 1964, we have educated over 2,200,000 students about conservation through our offering of over 80 programming options.

THE BEST FACILITIES

In order for AHEIA to provide cutting edge conservation education to students, we need properly equipped and maintained facilities to ensure our programming is top notch. Your support allows AHEI to update our primary education locations in Calgary, Edmonton, De Winton and Caroline to the AHEIA standard.

TOOLS OF THE TRADE

Our tools are absolutely essential to us being able to provide the high level of education that AHEIA has come to be known for. Your support makes this possible. 

TOP OF OUR GAME

AHEIA's education and programming is second to none. Why? Because of the highly experienced and qualified instructors developing our strong curriculum. Support from people like you is key to ensuring that we are able to keep all of our instructors at the top of their game with the latest training.
