In August, 2017, Cabela’s Canada introduced the Cabela’s Canada Outdoor Fund to ensure future generations enjoy hunting, fishing, camping and other recreational activities in the Canadian outdoors.

The Outdoor fund provides financial support to Canadian organizations that support this vision and that focus their activities on four primary pillars:

  • Advocacy: protecting the outdoor lifestyle and the right to hunt, fish, camp and trap
  • Education:teaching the next generation of hunters, anglers, campers, and recreational sport shooters
  • Conservation: improving the habitat with sound conservation methods to ensure future generations will enjoy hunting and fishing
  • Helping others:providing new experiences, assisting sick, disabled or underprivileged individuals through hunting, fishing, camping, and/or recreational sport shooting experiences

The Outdoor Fund accomplishes this through generous support of Cabela’s Canada customers who round up to the nearest dollar at checkout in our retail stores, through the call centre and online at


Here are some the organizations the Cabela’s Canada Outdoor Fund has supported:

Girl Guides of Canada

Boy Scouts of Canada

Archery Canada

Ducks Unlimited Canada

Canadian Wildlife Federation

BC Wildlife Federation

Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters

Alberta Trapper’s Association

Saskatoon Wildlife Federation

Cabela’s Canada receives thousands of requests for support in the form of donations and sponsorships. While we appreciate all submissions, resources are limited and we reserve our support for groups, causes and events that best represent the Cabela's culture of hunting, shooting, fishing, camping and outdoor recreation.

We thank you for your interest in Cabela’s Canada Outdoor Fund.
