Economic Support & Resources

District of Hudson's Hope
Regional Funding

South Peace Mckenzie Trust

Peace River Regional Grants

The Government of Canada provided the Province of British Columbia with the trust funding for the purpose of supporting communities and workers in response to Caribou recovery and habitat restoration impacts. The B.C. government is allocating $10 million of federal funding to help create jobs, diversify the economy, and alleviate potential impacts in the Peace Region, especially within 100 kilometres of the communities of Mackenzie, Chetwynd, and Tumbler Ridge.


In most cases, the maximum grant that will be considered for any one project will be $250,000. However, if an applicant can demonstrate a high probability of creating a large number of new income earning positions and/or creating some other exceptional benefit to the South Peace Mackenzie area that is consistent with the recovery of the Southern Mountain Caribou herds, a larger grant may be considered.
