Royal Canadian Falconry

Royal Canadian Falconry is a family owned small business in the Greater Toronto Area.
We use modern avian behavioural understanding combined with traditional falconry methods to train our birds of prey for public demonstrations and pest control. We hope to bring our birds closer to the public in order to instil a sense of wonder and responsibility within the next generation of conservationists.

Owned and operated by a Registered Veterinary Technician and member of the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians. The OAVT's role is to advocate for animals, regulate standards, and elevate professionals by developing skills and continuing education of veterinary professionals in Ontario.

Our mission is to achieve the highest standards of avian training, care, and educational programming through knowledge, continued education, and specialized training. We do this by making the physical and mental well being of each animal our primary consideration and to maintain excellence in animal handling. We uphold the strict code of ethics in practicing the art of falconry, always respecting the wild nature and maintaining the dignity of our birds of prey.

"Falconry is a time capsule of the story of our history intertwined with thousands of years of rich culture. It is a ferocious passion for the wild where above all else our priority is respect for the natural world, both predator and prey. It is conservation. It is resilience and adaptation. It is getting up before the sun and hunting every day until your legs hurt. It reminds us how far we've come, how far we've to go, and how lucky we are to be here because if there is anything falconry teaches you it's the fragility of the balance between life and death. We are so blessed to have the privilege to work along side these amazing creatures that could ever so swiftly leave and never return. It is a privilege to be able to bring this beautiful ancient art closer to the public."

Wonderful experience, completely professional, animals immaculately looked after and taken care of - and were also extremely happy to be doing what they were doing. Not an 'animal entertainment show' any any means. The handlers are very experienced, kind and respectful to their birds. Would go again in a heart beat!

Incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate falconers; you won’t regret going to meet these beautiful birds. It’s a surreal and once-in-a-lifetime experience that everyone should do in their lives. Highly recommend Royal Canadian Falconry!

I leveled up as a bird nerd at Royal Canadian Falconry’s great workshop! Excellent well-rounded ethical teaching covering biology, anatomy, health, illness prevention and responsible husbandry...
...certainly the best Sunday I’ve had in a long time. Thanks Amy, Andrew and Aspen!
