Join the Sport Fishing Institute of BC

Since 1980 the Sport Fishing Institute of BC has been working on behalf of 300,000 anglers and the entire sport fishing industry to protect and enhance access to recreational fishing opportunities, the environment, our economy, our coastal communities, and the Charter Rights of British Columbians.

Join the SFI today and help us raise the resources needed to protect access and opportunity to sport fishing and to expand our important work.

 

Protecting Our Sport

For over a century, Sport fishing has been an important part of BC’s history and heritage, and is a highly valued part of the social and economic fabric of the lives of hundreds of thousands of British Columbians today. Allocation and access discussions are complex, competitive and require a strong, well informed and consistent voice to ensure the future of our fishery. Through your active membership and financial support, we are able to effectively lobby Federal and Provincial governments to protect your access to fisheries resources and ensure a better future for our fishery.


Protecting Your Rights

For almost 40 years the SFI has been promoting and protecting the rights of British Columbians, this has included active participation in critical legal cases that have gone to the Supreme Court of Canada. By growing our legal defense fund, we can ensure that your voice is heard in cases that impact our fishery, and that governments are held accountable for the decisions they make.

 


Protecting Our Environment

Your membership in the SFI gives us a powerful voice to help protect and enhance BC’s coastal marine ecosystem. With your financial support, we can expand our current campaign to educate British Columbians and efforts to find meaningful solutions to the challenges faced by Southern Resident Killer whale populations, enhance our Chinook populations and to protect our waters from toxins and pollutants. With your support, we will continue to place the sustainability of our fishery as a high priority, and to work towards ensuring that the ecosystem we all have the privilege to enjoy and upon which our fishery depends is healthy and productive.


Forming a Coastal Alliance

The Sport Fishing Institute of BC is at the forefront in a growing Alliance of likeminded organizations dedicated to promoting, protecting, and enhancing BC’s coastal environment and recreational sport fishing opportunities. Please join us today by becoming an active Member of the SFI.
