About Us

View All News »

In the early 1960’s approximately twenty trappers in the Dryden area would meet each spring and host an informal get-together (supper, dance and a place to swap stories). These local trappers belonged to the Ontario Trappers Association (OTA).

In 1969, Ken Tomley, who was the individual responsible for picking up the furs in the area and sending them to auction, was travelling the province forming trappers councils in each area. He formed councils so that each area would be better represented as a collective group instead of individual trappers trying to work through issues and concerns individually.

The area trappers councils would give the Ontario Trappers Association (OTA) better representation at Queen’s Park and have more influence when discussing procedures and policy changes with the province. Over the years, the Dryden Trappers Council has grown and now has over seventy (70) active members.

The Dryden Trappers Council is governed by an elected Executive Board and is a non-profit organization.
