Conservation partners recognized by O.F.A.H.

Partners contribute hundreds of thousands in innovative business relationships

Attention: Assignment Editor, Environment Editor, News Editor, Sports Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor ONTARIO: O.F.A.H. MEDIA RELEASE--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - Every year the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (O.F.A.H.) celebrates the contributions of two of its conservation partners at the O.F.A.H. Annual General Meeting and Fish and Wildlife Conference. This year, the Bank of Montreal, and Angler & Hunter Insurance were the recipients of the O.F.A.H. Industry Awards.

"BMO Mosaik MasterCard is the Federation's longest standing partner, through the O.F.A.H. Affinity program," said Executive Director Mike Reader, "For 22 years now, our members have been contributing to conservation every time they use their O.F.A.H. customized credit card. That initiative has earned the O.F.A.H. hundreds of thousands of dollars for conservation programming, and we are delighted at the strong support the BMO has shown the O.F.A.H. over that time."

Angler and Hunter Insurance Brokers has been a valued conservation partner since 1997. For over a decade, O.F.A.H. members and clubs have benefited from affordable insurance through a special O.F.A.H. program, one that Angler and Hunter had confidence in when others in the insurance industry did not. The relationship is still working today, with Angler and Hunter Insurance Brokers contributing tens of thousands of dollars for conservation projects.

"Partnerships with organizations like Angler and Hunter Insurance Brokers enable both our members and the environment to benefit. Without the financial assistance our partnership with them has provided, we would not have had the means to take on the many conservation fish and wildlife initiatives across the province that we are so passionate about," commented Reader during the award presentation.

With over 83,000 members and 655 member clubs, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters is the leading fishing, hunting and conservation organization in Ontario and the voice of anglers and hunters. For more information visit www.ofah.org
