CERTIFIED trap models are given exclusive identification letters that manufacturers must mark on their traps. Trappers who purchased these same trap models before the implementation of the AIHTS (2007) may still legally use them, regardless of whether they bear this mark.

Phase 2

Year of implementation to be determined – Although the traps listed in Phase 2 are certified for the following species and trap categories, the year of entry into force of the obligation to use only AIHTS Certified traps has not yet been determined. This date, which could vary from one species to another, will be known at least 3 years in advance. Until then, traps that are currently legally permitted can still be used.

For all Canadian jurisdictions, certified killing traps for ermine/weasels and Canada lynx will become mandatory (Phase 1) in the fall of 2015 (except 2016 in Quebec) and for otter in the fall of 2016.
