Alberta Professional Outfitters Society
The Alberta Professional Outfitters Society (APOS) is a not for profit, Delegated Administrative Organization (DAO), an arms-length, self-funded, legal entity established for the purpose of delivering a service traditionally done by government, that administers the outfitted-hunting industry in Alberta. APOS celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2007.
There are over 400 member Outfitter-Guides and almost 1500 Guides registered through APOS that provide big game, waterfowl and bird game services to several thousand clients each year.
The Alberta Outfitting Industry is an active participant in the Alberta conservation community and contributes considerable funding to conservation projects and research through the APOS Legacy Fund, the Wildlife Management Fund as well as significant contributions by individual outfitters.
