The purpose of the Invasive Plant Control Program (IPCP) is to provide financial assistance to rural municipalities (RMs), First Nations (FNs) south of the Northern Administrative District, and other stakeholders through their respective RMs and FNs, with costs to undertake and coordinate the control of prohibited weeds as well as specific noxious weeds that are persistent and problematic invasive plants.

SARM will administer a 50:50 cost-share rebate program in the amount of $856,000 to assist with costs to control all prohibited weeds and eligible herbicide costs to control a limited number of noxious weeds of high concern designated under The Weed Control Act.

RMs and FNs are eligible to claim for RM appointed or FN authorized Weed Inspector expenses related to prohibited and noxious weed monitoring in their jurisdictions.

The deadline to claim under the 2024-25 IPCP is October 31, 2024
