Advertising, Sponsorship & Donations

In 1908 a group of conservation-minded sportspeople began what was to become The Alberta Fish and Game Association (AFGA). Since then the Alberta Fish and Game Association has been providing education, awareness and advocacy services to Alberta’s hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts. As outdoor recreational sports, hunting and fishing have changed dramatically over the century. No longer are hunters and anglers merely users of our precious natural resources; they are conservationists, managers of wildlife habitat, and dedicated supporters of our environment.

Today the AFGA boasts more than 25,000 volunteer members. We will be holding our annual conference in Calgary on February 21-23, 2019. Our Conference provides an opportunity for members and guests from across Alberta to learn about current conservation, habitat, fishing and hunting issues affecting all Albertans.

The AFGA Annual Conference is an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate your support of our provincial conservation efforts. Two Hundred-plus attendees representing more than 25,000 members from all four corners of the province will be in attendance. This is a captive audience of enthusiastic hunters, anglers, conservationists and business people, interested in what you have to offer. So whether you want to promote yourself or demonstrate your support of our worthwhile organization, AFGA provides a variety of opportunities at very affordable rates! In return for your sponsorship we will recognize your participation as outlined below. We look forward to having you join us!
