The Community Salmon Program (CSP) online application system is now open for our Spring 2018 funding round. Application deadline is February 15, 2018.

Please go to to create an account for your organization. From there, log in to create and submit your CSP applications. It is no longer necessary to send any documents by mail or email as the system can handle all of your support materials (letters, photos, maps, etc.) as attachments.

CSP 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, the Community Salmon Program:

  • Has made grants to more than 2,000 projects;
  • Engaged more than 30,000 stewardship volunteers;
  • Rehabilitated 1.45 million square meters of streams;
  • Planted 360,000 trees and shrubs; and
  • Partnered with community grantees to raise an additional $7 for each $1 granted by the Foundation.
