Our Partners

Partnerships are essential to achieving our vision

Our most important partner is the Province of BC. We work very closely with the Fish, Wildlife and Habitat Management Branch and regional fisheries biologists on many initiatives, including the development and delivery of the provincial stocking program, improvements to the management of sport fishing and the delivery of endangered species recovery initiatives.

Another key partner is the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, which has been a key supporter of our Learn to Fish, Fishing in the City and angler marketing programs.

Contributions from our partners, big or small, are important to our organization. We thank them all for their support, including those listed here:
