Community Engagement Grants 
Remember that we have Community Engagement Grants (CEG) available in our Peace Region. Contact us if you have a project idea that will benefit fish and wildlife, especially if it involves volunteers. You could be eligible for up to $1,000. They're easy to apply for, with a quick turn-around.
The FWCP is a partnership between BC Hydro, the Province of B.C., Fisheries and Oceans Canada, First Nations, and Public Stakeholders, to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in watersheds impacted by existing BC Hydro dams.
