December 15, 2017 Saving Lives on the Water!

How We Are Funded

Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue is a Registered Charity in British Columbia.  Our funding comes from several sources:

  • Department of Fisheries and Oceans and Canadian Coast Guard for on-water emergency response and crew readiness training.
  • Corporate donations for training and development of our regional training facility.
  • Province of British Columbia Community Gaming Grants for vessels, boating safety programs and a wide range of search and rescue equipment.
  • Individuals who contribute to rescue stations in their community or to RCM-SAR as a whole.

We are careful stewards of the funding that we receive to support our volunteers, and we are very proud of our track record as an efficient and effective non-profit organization.  Our audited financial statements are available in our annual report.
