Species at Risk Partnerships on Agricultural Lands

SARPAL is an initiative supported by the Government of Canada under the National Conservation Plan. The goal of this initiative is to help recover and protect species listed under the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) through voluntary stewardship on farmland where critical habitat for SARA-listed species are found.

SARPAL Funding for Project BMPs

Producers who develop and have a completed and current Environmental Farm Plan may be eligible to apply for cost-shared incentives through the SARPAL program to implement conservation actions identified in their on-farm environmental action plans.

  • Beneficial Management Practices (BMP) Policy Procedure Document

  • SARPAL Project Application (not accepting program applications at this time)

ARDCorp has partnered with Environment and Climate Change Canada to help deliver SARPAL in British Columbia by supporting agricultural associations and individual producers to develop, test and implement beneficial management practices that help to protect SARA-listed species. SARPAL is not a compensation program nor intended to be an ongoing income-replacement program.
