Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk

The AFSAR helps Aboriginal organizations and communities across Canada build capacity to enable them to participate actively in the conservation and recovery of species protected under Species at Risk Act (SARA) and species at risk. New funding under the National Conservation Plan announced in 2014 provides further support to the AFSAR for species at risk and also introduced new funding for species that are not at risk. Therefore, going forward, funding under the Program will focus on two distinct funding streams:

  1. Stream one focuses on traditional species at risk recovery projects (Species at Risk Stream); and
  2. Stream two focuses on projects addressing other priority species beyond the protection and recovery of species at risk under the Species at Risk Act to prevent them from becoming a conservation concern (Prevention stream)
