The North Shore Fish & Game Club (NSFGC) is a fishing, hunting and conservation organization,which has been active on the North Shore since 1964. The purpose of the club is to foster fellowship and information exchange amoung sportsmen and women, to provide a collective voice within the community and to contribute to conservation of fish and wildlife in British Columbia.
The NSFGC is associated member of the BC Wildlife Federation. Membership of the club is open to all. The club has active anglers, hunters and conservationists who are more then willing to share their knowledge and experiences. The NSFGC has a monthly meeting (except July & August) where all members get together and share their experiences. We have guest speakers during the second half of the meetings. Topics covered by past guest speakers have included fishery policies, new boating regulations, gun control, and salmon conservation.
The meetings are held on the first Wednesay of the month at The Royal Canadian legion, Branch #118, 123 West 15th Street in North Vancouver at 7:30 pm. The NSFGC also has regular outings and activies throughout the year.
At our last meeting held on March 7th, 2018 the membership approved four donations to very worthy causes. We agreed to give:
• $500.00 for buses to transport students to the Capilano Fish Hatchery
• $500.00 to West Vancouver Marine Search and Rescue
• $500.00 to North Shore Rescue Team Society ( North Shore Search and Rescue )
• $1400.00 to purchase 1 collar for the 1 Deer involved in the Southern Interior Mule Deer Project.
