The purpose of Bird Conservation Regions strategies is to summarize the important issues and to recommend the actions required to conserve populations of birds in Canada. The Bird Conservation Regions (BCR) used as the basis for our planning units are based on the Commission for Environmental Cooperation’s internationally-accepted Level III ecoregions. We have adopted Marine Biogeographic Units as the planning units for marine birds. The data presented here have three main functions: to provide a consistent national approach to planning for bird conservation in Canada; to streamline the planning process; and to provide sufficient guidance to allow the development of detailed implementation plans and to support on-the-ground conservation efforts.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Population status of Canada's migratory birds indicator reports the proportion of bird species listed in the Migratory Birds Convention Act whose populations fall within, or are above or below national population goals. It provides a snapshot assessment of the state of bird populations in Canada. Some bird species are managed towards specific population levels (for example, some hunted species or species of conservation concern).

The Canadian Wildlife Service - Ontario Region Biodiversity Atlas represents the Canadian Wildlife Service biodiversity portfolio across the Ontario portions of the Boreal Hardwood Shield (Bird Conservation Region 12) and Mixedwood Plains (Bird Conservation Region 13) ecozones. These data are the derived product from an extensive landscape assessment that assessed the Canadian Wildlife Service biodiversity portfolio (Species at Risk, migratory birds, habitat) at various resolutions. Biodiversity is mapped by forest, grassland (open country) and wetland quality and quantity, and then progressively combined to identify local High Value Biodiversity Areas. At the finest resolution, scores were applied to each unit of analysis (5 hectare hexagon in Bird Conservation Region 12; 2 hectare hexagon in Bird Conservation Region 13), based on over 30 criteria for landscape habitat condition, Species at Risk and migratory birds.

Data is collected using automated recording devices which are pre-programmed and set-up in forest ecosystems. Units are programed to capture bird calls in the mornings from May-August and subsequent recordings are analysed by Bird Studies Canada. The abundance of forest birds from various community guilds are compared to other analogous forest types from across Ontario monitored using the Forest Bird Monitoring Protocol.

The Canadian Breeding Bird Census (BBC) Database contains data for 928 breeding bird plot censuses representing all known censuses of breeding birds carried out in Canada during the period 1929–1993. The 928 records in the database represent 640 unique census plots located in all provinces and territories, except Prince Edward Island. The BBC, which was replaced by the current Breeding Bird Survey, is one of the longest-running surveys of bird populations in North America, and was designed to help determine abundance and distribution patterns of bird species. An important feature of the BBC Database is the habitat data associated with each census plot.
