The Beaver Control Program (BCP) focuses on the humane removal of adult nuisance beaver along with the use of easy man-made flow devices that offer a cost-effective, non-lethal and sustainable humane approach to mitigate flooding problems due to nuisance beaver populations.

SARM administers a 50:50 cost-share rebate program to all rural municipalities and First Nations south of the Northern Administrative District, to control the beaver population in their respective jurisdictions. Funding for rebates to RMs and FNs that operate a humane beaver management program is to a maximum of $450,000.

The deadline to claim under the 2024-25 BCP is February 15, 2025.
