Welcome to the Commercial Bear Viewing Association of British Columbia
The Commercial Bear Viewing Association of BC (CBVA) was formed to promote sustainable bear viewing in British Columbia and aid in the protection of wild bears and their ecosystems.
Before you book your next BC bear watching adventure tour, ensure that the tour company you choose is a member of the CBVA. Be sure to visit our member page to see what the possibilities might be for your next adventure in the company of wild bears!

Each year, thousands of grizzlies are killed worldwide for entertainment. Diving deep into the controversy across Canada and the United States, Trophy asks: can we truly justify killing these animals for sport?
Since the board of directors last met in March, a political committee has been formed and is working with our government to finally get an end to the grizzly bear hunt. We are actively lobbying for our industry.
