Submit your mandatory Notice of Intent by September 8, 2017
If you are applying for a fish or wildlife grant in our Peace Region, you must submit a mandatory Notice of Intent (NOI) by Friday, September 8, 2017, by 5 p.m. PDT.
The NOI is an important part of our commitment to First Nations. It helps inform First Nations about your proposed project and allows our Peace Region Manager, Chelsea Coady, to provide you with additional guidance before submitting your grant application on Friday, October 27, 2017, by 5 p.m. PDT.
Start your Peace Region online grant application and follow the instructions to complete and submit your Notice of Intent.
Your NOI will be reviewed by our First Nations Working Group and you will receive written notice via email advising you to contact specific First Nations in our Peace Region to discuss your proposed project.
We expect the dialogue to:
- Occur in advance of the grant application deadline;
- Determine First Nations’ support for the proposed project; and
- Identify reasonable opportunities for First Nation involvement and recognition and the inclusion of cultural values and traditional knowledge in the proposed project.
