Puppy Mills = Puppy Cruelty

Project Report | Sep 18, 2019
Increase public safety by building a Humane Canada

By Derek Rumboldt-deLouche | Director Resource Development

Humane Canada created the following recommendations as a guide to action that can be taken to create a more humane Canada.  With a federal election underway in Canada we are working to ensure that the next government has these issues on their radar and that we will have a plan for action once the government is elected.

Instrumental to creating a humane Canada is federal legislation that protects animals from cruelty and provides a framework to ensure animals are treated humanely and with respect. In many areas, our laws are significantly out of date, and lag behind the international community. When Canadians are polled on these issues, there is overwhelming support for taking action to treat animals more humanely. Support for treating animals humanely is particularly strong among millennials and younger Canadians.


  • Ensure that all reporting and tracking systems integrate animal cruelty including the Violent Crime Linkage Analysis System and the Major Case Management system.
  • Create an Animal Cruelty Offender Database so that offences and offenders can be tracked.
  • Fund mandatory training for Justice stakeholders to entrench knowledge of animal welfare and the Violence Link into the system.
  • Ensure that animal issues are tracked by Statistics Canada including information about companion animals in Canadian households and co-occurrence of animal abuse and interpersonal violence.
  • Commit funding to a national humane education strategy so that every child and youth is provided the education and training they need to develop respect, empathy and compassion toward human and nonhuman animals and thereby to value the interests of others.
