The HCTF Fisheries Operations and Maintenance Program provides funding to the Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development for the operations and maintenance of infrastructure initially funded, whole or in part, by HCTF Enhancement and Restoration Grant funding. Examples include the operations and maintenance of lake aeration systems, spawning channels and dams/diversions.
This program is limited to established projects and designed regional fisheries biologists. Application forms are provided directly to proponents for each regional project. For more information, contact HCTF’s Conservation Specialist Christina Waddle.
In recognition of the recent pressures placed on current HCTF grant recipients in the ongoing efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 we have automatically extended this year’s deadline for submitting grant reports to June 30th, 2020. You do not need to apply for this extension. Please note: if you’re able to submit your report prior to the April 15th deadline, we highly encourage you to do so! This will allow us to get you your final payment sooner, by cheque or electronic fund transfer.
Report forms are customized for each project will be provided by email in late February or early March. Report forms are due by April 15th each year.
The HCTF Fisheries O&M program does allow some flexibility for project leaders to make changes to their projects but certain amendments do require pre-approval from HCTF. Please read the following to determine whether or not you will need to contact HCTF prior to making project changes:
