Local Conservation Funds in British Columbia is a guide for municipal and regional governments and non-governmental organizations looking to create a dedicated source of funding to support sustainability conservation efforts.

This guide provides essential information for establishing a conservation fund and a service based on a levy or fee, including current case studies and examples of successful conservation fund campaigns and experiences from around BC. 

There is no “one size fits all” method to establishing a conservation fund; everything—from choosing a legislative approach, to deciding how to finance the fund and engage the public—depends on the nature and needs of each community.

The guide expands on seven main tasks that should be considered during the fund establishment process. The website also highlights helpful existing conservation fund information including Terms of Reference, approved projects, examples of bylaws and more
