About Trout Unlimited Canada:

Founded in 1972 Trout Unlimited Canada (TUC) works to conserve Canada’s water and fish. Its mission is to conserve, protect, and restore Canada’s freshwater ecosystems and cold-water resources for current and future generations. Since its inception, TUC has saved over 895,000 fish. TUC has 22 chapters across Canada and runs two major programs: conservation (89% of program spending) and education (11% of program spending).

TUC’s conservation program attempts to protect Canada’s waterways and save fish. TUC repaired over 50km of streams and rivers, and planted over 3,000 trees to help fight climate change. In F2018, the charity rescued 17,000 fish across Ontario and had 315 people dedicate 10,000 hours of research to the development of restoration plans for Canada’s water.   

Through the education program, TUC improves people’s knowledge and awareness of water pollution, water quality, and stream restoration. In F2018, TUC educated over 58,000 people, engaged 160 partners and education leaders, and provided 650 presentations, talks and tours to 16,500 people. TUC is an active member of seven national committees dedicated to improving fish and wildlife habitat protection. TUC has also worked with 33 provincial and regional groups that work to improve fisheries management, habitat protection, and environment threat management.

Trout Unlimited Canada reports that for $1 received from donors, it produces $4 of “on the ground change.” The charity does not disclose whether the value created relates to conservation activities, education activities, or both.
