Our mission is to preserve and enhance the art of falconry in Ontario by promoting a community in which high standards of practice and the best traditions of falconry can flourish in a legal environment.
The Ontario Hawking Club (OHC) encourages the exchange of knowledge between new-comers to the sport and those with years of experience, and as active conservationists we work to further public understanding of falconry and raptor conservation issues.
The OHC holds various events throughout the year for its members- a spring Orientation workshop, an annual member’s meeting, a summer BBQ and Apprentice seminars, and a fall Field Meet. The Field Meet includes a banquet and a keynote presentation by a leader in the world of falconry or raptor conservation. All of these events are great opportunities to connect with other falconers and share hunting experiences, as well as meet and learn from a variety of respected names in North American falconry.
The OHC works closely with the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) to develop the regulations and policies that govern the practice of falconry and to educate MNR field staff about our sport.
If you are as serious about falconry as we are, why not join the Ontario Hawking Club?
