Robert Pearsall, PA to MP Mark Strahl


olunteer streamkeepers across British Columbia and the Yukon who protect and restore salmon habitat can now apply for funding through the Pacific Salmon Foundation’s Community Salmon Program, announced Chilliwack-Hope MP Mark Strahl.

“I encourage organizations across Chilliwack-Hope that volunteer their time and do important work that keeps our streams and rivers clean to apply for funding,” said Strahl. “As the Chair of the BC-Yukon Conservative caucus, I helped ensure that 100% of the federal salmon stamp revenues would flow to the Pacific Salmon Foundation, and I am pleased to see that these funds can now be reinvested in the local community through grants from the Community Salmon Program”.

The deadline for the Spring 2016 application intake is February 15 at midnight. For more information, or to apply, visit:
