“The notice of intent is a mandatory first step for all grant applicants,” said Chelsea Coady, FWCP's Peace Region Manager, in a news release. “We’re just looking for bit of information about your proposed project."

The program—operated in partnership between BC Hydro, the province, First Nations, and other public groups—funds research-based and hands-on projects targeting lakes, reservoirs, streams, uplands, riparian areas, and species of interest. It's meant to address fish and wildlife impacted by existing Hydro dams.

The program has $2.1 million in project underway this year.

FWCP will hold an online information session on Aug. 29 about the grants and how to apply. Those interested can register by emailing

A second info session will be held for those who submit a notice of intent by Sept. 7. Grant applications are due by Oct. 26.

For more information, call Coady at 250-561-4884 or email
