Analysis of Programs by Strategic Outcome

Sub-program 1.4.2 - Salmonid Enhancement Contribution Programs

Description

Salmonid Enhancement Contribution Programs provide funding to support delivery of community-based salmon and fish habitat projects. Fisheries and Oceans Canada has established contribution arrangements supporting long-term collaborations with the Pacific Salmon Foundation and the T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation. The source of the Department's funding contribution to these foundations is fully offset by the revenues generated by the sale of the Pacific Salmon Conservation stamp and the Commercial Conservation surcharge on Fisher Registration Cards. Using Fisheries and Oceans Canada contributions as seed money, the Pacific Salmon Foundation supports highly leveraged, community-based salmon and fish habitat projects that conserve, restore, and enhance Pacific salmon in partnership with communities, other governments, First Nation representatives, and non-profit organizations. The T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation directly undertakes projects for fishing communities to protect and conserve fish and fish habitat.
