The CCWHC partnership was established in 1992 with leadership from Environment Canada and the Canadian Wildlife Directors, and with additional financial assistance from the Max Bell Foundation.

In 2008-2009, the following organizations supported the core CCWHC program, namely Canada's National Wildlife Disease Surveillance Program as well as informational and educational programs designed for students, partner agencies and the public. Sponsorship included four Government of Canada agencies: Environment Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada, Parks Canada, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. The partnership also included all provincial and territorial governments, representing Fish & Wildlife, Environment, Agriculture and Health. Additional partners were: the University of Saskatchewan, the University of Guelph, the University of Montreal, the University of Prince Edward Island, the University of Calgary, as well as Ducks Unlimited Canada, the Canadian Wildlife Federation and Syngenta Crop Protection Canada.
