Community Salmon Program offers two streams of grant funding: Short and Standard Form applications. Applicants are limited to one Short Form application (single-item requests not exceeding $1,500) per funding round, and unlimited Standard Forms (requests over $1,500). Please note that CSP will pay up to 50% of the total value of each project and must be matched by other funds, donations, and volunteer labour.

The Pacific Salmon Foundation’s Community Salmon Program is a grantmaking program that supports volunteer and community–driven organizations that undertake salmon conservation and restoration projects in British Columbia and the Yukon. The program makes annual grants totaling more than $1.5 million. The majority of these funds are generated through sales of the Recreational Fisheries Conservation Stamp, commonly known as the Salmon Stamp, by Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

Since 1989, Community Salmon Program grants have helped:

  • Fund more than 3,000 projects;
  • Engage more than 35,000 stewardship volunteers;
  • Rehabilitate more than 1.75 million square meters of streams;
  • Plant more than 430,000 trees and shrubs; and
  • Partner with community grantees to raise an additional $7 for each $1 granted by the Foundation.
