The Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation ASCF is an independent, federally incorporated, non-profit organization, which was established through a one-time grant of 30$ million from the Governement of Canada. The interest generated from investment of the grant is used to support activities related to the conservation of the wild Atlantic salmon and its habitat.
The goal of the Foundation is to help achieve healthy and sustainable wild Atlantic salmon stocks in Atlantic Canada and Quebec through partnerships among volunteer conservation groups, Aboriginal organizations, governments and others.
