Our major source of financial support comes from:
Environment Canada’s Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk
These funds play an important role in the recovery of species at risk on Aboriginal lands. The goal is to contribute to the conservation and protection of Canada’s biodiversity by supporting species recovery planning, habitat protection, and overall conservation and capacity-building-initiatives by Aboriginal people in Canada. For more info visit Environment Canada's website.
And in the past we have received funding from the Habitat Stewardship Program. As part of Canada's national strategy for the protection of species at risk, the federal government established the Habitat Stewardship Program (HSP) for Species at Risk. The HSP became operational in 2000-2001 and allocates up to $10 million per year to projects that conserve and protect species at risk and their habitats. We are thankful for their support
