Welcome to the 2024 CCFR AGM

Here’s everything you need to know!

The 2024 CCFR AGM will be held on May 25, 2024 in beautiful Calgary, Alberta at the Sheraton Cavalier Calgary Hotel in the Sheraton Ballroom. This website will provide everything you need to attend in person. Can’t make it? No problem. We’ll be streaming it live for those too far away or can’t make the trip.

There are two parts to the AGM; the business meeting and the fundraising auction dinner. All CCFR members are welcome to join the business meeting free of charge, whether in person or online but you MUST be a CCFR member in good standing.

The Guest Speaker: we are beyond excited to announce the celebrity keynote speaker at the AGM dinner will be none other than Canadian hunting legend, Jim Shockey.

Jim is a Canadian outdoor writer, a professional big game outfitter and television producer and host for many hunting shows.

He is the former producer and host of Jim Shockey's Hunting Adventures and Jim Shockey's Uncharted on Outdoor Channel and Jim Shockey's The Professionals on Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel.

He is a retired member of the Canadian Armed Forces, serving the rank Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel of the 4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group.

His hunting adventures have spanned six continents and 50 countries.

Shockey has been called by Outdoor Life magazine "the most accomplished big-game hunter of the modern era, having taken arguably the most free-range big game species by any living hunter." They also noted that he is "the most influential celebrity in big-game hunting."

Jim also owns and operates the Hand of Man Museum in BC and has so many awards and accolades it would be impossible to list them all here.

He also recently published the best-selling fiction book, “Call Me Hunter”.

Jim has been a vocal and visible advocate and partnered with the CCFR on a variety of advocacy projects and has even been on the Hill in Ottawa lobbying.

Join Rod, Tracey, Jim and the whole CCFR team for an incredible, memorable evening.

The Auction: a number of CCFR business members and supporters have stepped up to donate guns, gear and hunting trips that we’ll be auctioning off at the dinner through silent auctions (in person) and live auctions that everyone can participate in. An auction program will be available online and in print. You do not have to be a CCFR member to participate in person or online, but we sure would appreciate the help if you joined. Live Auction details coming soon!
