Partners with the Program
The Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) works to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by construction of BC Hydro dams in the Canadian portion of the Columbia Basin. In order to achieve its mandate the FWCP works with a range of supportive partners who provide a variety of financial, technical and hands-on support. Visit our links for information about our partners and other related sites.
Program Partners, such as the provincial Ministry of Environment, BC Hydro and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, provide ongoing funding and/or technical expertise critical to our programís success. This important joint-initiative would not be possible without ongoing support from these Program Partners.
External Funding Partners, such as the Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Power Corporation, and FortisBC, provide funding for specific projects and initiatives. Their contributions make it possible for the FWCP to coordinate efforts with these agencies to deliver projects cost effectively.
Project Partners include a range of regional fish and wildlife interest groups, community organizations and others. These groups apply for funding and work with the FWCP staff to deliver beneficial fish and wildlife projects across the Columbia Basin.
Since the formation of the FWCP in 1995, it has worked with hundreds of partners to deliver fish and wildlife projects. These partners include a range of community-based environmental, and fish and wildlife groups, outdoors groups, First Nations, local industrial partners including power producers, and the provincial and federal governments.
