Beaver Control Program (CAP-BCP)
In 2020-21, SARM will administer a 50:50 cost-share rebate program to all rural municipalities (RM) and First Nations Bands (FNB), south of the Northern Administrative District, to control the beaver population in their respective jurisdictions. The CAP-BCP will focus on the humane removal of nuisance beaver by providing rebates to RMs and FNBs that operate a humane beaver management program between April 1, 2020 and February 15, 2021. Funding for rebates for this program year is to a maximum of $450,000.
The program will rebate:
- Up to 50% per adult nuisance beaver removed by licensed fur trappers (based on a minimum $30 payment per nuisance beaver removed);
- Up to $500 for pond leveler materials and installation each but not exceeding 50% of eligible cost (less any taxes with verified invoices); and
- Up to $500 for beaver deceiver materials and installation each but not exceeding 50% of eligible cost (less any taxes with verified invoices).
The deadline to claim under the 2020-21 CAP-BCP is February 15, 2021.
