“Designed as a global model of what conservation must become – an inherent part of healthy economies, environments and cultures – our Conservation and Economic Development Funds are dedicated to empowering the First Nations in the Central and North Coasts and Haida Gwaii in achieving healthy and vibrant economies and communities in partnership with the long term protection of their homelands for the benefit of future generations.”

“Coast Opportunity Funds oversees and manages $116 million provided by the Province of British Columbia, the Government of Canada, and six private foundations, in two funds:

  • The Conservation Fund, a long-term fund designed to support activities that maintain or improve the Great Bear Rainforest.
  • The Economic Development Fund, a shorter-term fund designed to create sustainable businesses and community-based employment opportunities over seven years.”
