For all Range States except Canada, this legislation is national in scope. In Canada, polar bear management is primarily dealt with at the provincial or territorial government level; therefore, different laws apply, depending on the jurisdiction where the subpopulation is situated. This section provides an overview of the status of the domestic conservation strategy of each Range State.
