About Us

Spawning Pacific Salmon - South Vancouver Island Angleres CoalitionSouth Vancouver Island Anglers Coalition (SVIAC) is an independent, not-for-profit, advocacy society. Our efforts and initiatives are dedicated exclusively to ensure there will be abundant fish, healthy productive habitat and thriving public fisheries in our region for generations to come. We will ensure the public fisheries are recognized for what they are; a healthy sustainable activity and undeniably the wisest use of Canada’s valuable resource.

The society is overseen by a seven-member Board of Directors who are all accomplished anglers with a passion for conservation. In addition to the board, there are three committees, run by dedicated volunteers, to assist with SVIAC’s operations.  Our membership is diverse and consists of a broad range of individuals, companies and associations, who understand and support  our vision and goals. Our mandate encompasses both fresh and saltwater angling on south Vancouver Island.

Think of our society as a powerful, well-organized alliance of concerned anglers and other like-minded citizens, businesses and NGOs, who are simply not prepared to allow our precious Pacific fish resources and public fisheries to be mismanaged into extinction.
