Genuine Mackenzie Valley Furs

  • Northwest Territories (NWT) fur harvesters, in partnership with the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT), are proud to confirm the continuation of the wild fur marketing program.

    Under the brand label Genuine Mackenzie Valley Furs™ (GMVF), all NWT harvested fur that meets our standard for high quality, will continue to be offered in exclusive GMVF lots at auction and under private treaty by Fur Harvesters Auction in North Bay.

    Our mission is to ensure that only superior Northern Canadian wild furs are offered under the GMVF label. As a buyer, you can be confident that fur marketed under the GMVF brand meets stringent standards of excellence.

    Promoting and identifying NWT fur at auction creates a unique relationship between the buyer and harvester. Ultimately, GMVF harvesters benefit from the premium price they receive at auction and the customer is guaranteed the best quality product the industry has to offer.

    All wild furs in the GMVF collection:

    • Comply with European markets guidelines.
    • Meet the standards set out in the Agreement on International Humane Trap Standards.
    • Are harvested as part of an ongoing, centuries old tradition using the most humane harvesting techniques in the fur industry today.
    • Are collected, inspected and shipped to the auction by the Department of Resources, Wildlife and Economic Development on behalf of the harvester. Our quality control standards ensure that all GMVF fur is of the highest quality.

    The Government of the Northwest Territories is committed to improving the livelihood of fur harvesters and continues to be an active supporter of the Canadian wild fur industry. Genuine Mackenzie Valley Furs (GMVF) will continue to provide Sew-In Labels to buyers of exclusive Genuine Mackenzie Valley Furs bundles.
