Beaver Control Program

CAP-BCP

Down Arrow
Wheat Stalk

Under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) agreement, the Federal and Provincial governments have committed to invest $3.15 million in the Pest Biosecurity Program for the remainder of CAP to March 31, 2023.  SARM will continue to deliver this program and administer a network of Plant Health Officers (PHO) across the province along with three rebate programs based on a 50:50 cost-share, one each focused on invasive plant control, rat control and nuisance beaver control. 

SARM administers 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. 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 2021-22 CAP-BCP is February 15, 2022. 

NEW – The eligible dates to claim for adult nuisance beaver to be removed has been extended to included February 16, 2021 to the claim deadline, February 15, 2022.
