VISION

Canada's northern wild fur is a high-quality, sustainable and recyclable natural resource, harnessing eco-friendly and ethical values for the benefit of trappers, craftspeople, businesses and Indigenous communities, for whom fur is integral to ancestral and contemporary lifestyles and a path of legitimate development.

SEMIOLOGY

The Écofaune Boréale logo is inspired by a traditional art style that represents the environment, plants, minerals and animals. Evidently, the special vocation of Écofaune Boréale suggests a representation more related to wildlife, in a historical context where the cultures have all been concerned by activities intimately linked to Northern life, trapping, living in territory, traditional medicine, and the natural food of the forest.

The attachment of the peoples here (former, present, and future) to wildlife is illustrated in this logo in many ways, a bit like a symbiosis of representative elements of complementary activities revolving around the fur of Northern wild animals. Écofaune Boréale hopes to act as a bridge between visions, values to share, and partnerships to redefine in order to accompany a respectful development of the fauna, valorized in a sustainable way.
