We are pleased to host the 21st Annual Policy Conference and Big Splash Fundraiser at the Vancouver Convention Centre West in Vancouver, BC on Friday, November 15th, 2019.
The Sport Fishing Institute of BC is a non-profit organization established in the early 1980’s and is dedicated to promoting, enhancing and protecting sustainable sport fishing opportunities in BC. Our Vision: that British Columbia sport fishing be known as a world leader in quality of experience and opportunity, providing the broadest range of social and economic benefits.
Over the years, many changes have occurred in the recreational fishery. Without our efforts and your support, a sustainable fishery and public access would look very different to than they do today. In addition to sustained efforts to make the benefits, social and economic, of sport fishing known to government and the public, we address emerging and ongoing issues that affect the sector. Allocation disputes, impacts to access and opportunity, and licensing and transport issues all have the potential to cause significant impacts on opportunities now and in the future.
Now more than ever, we need your support to demonstrate a strong, unified and determined voice to protect sustainable opportunity for the sport fishing community.
Please join us on November 15th for presentations and timely dialogue with experts from our sport fishing and scientific community and DFO at our SFI Policy Conference - Striving for Certainty & Stability. Stay on for our evening Big Splash Fundraiser, a lively and social evening that begins with a cocktail hour, includes live and silent auction items, raffles, some brief presentations and a superb sit down dinner planned by the innovative and talented chefs at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Our event is expected to draw more than 300 guests and supporters from all over BC.
We welcome you to attend to support sport fishing in BC and encourage you to get tickets early and while they are still available. All ticket sales will be closed on Friday, November 8, 2019. Buy your early bird Splash tickets before October 31, 2019 and you will be entered in a draw to win two tickets to the Vancouver Canucks game on November 14th, 2019.
