About Trout Unlimited Canada:
Trout Unlimited Canada (TUC) is focused on the protection of cold water streams and riparian environments, including the benefits of improved water quality for the general population. Established in 1972, TUC has operations in every province in the county, working primarily on watershed renewal. TUC scientists have recognized expertise in the field and participate in many national and local working groups. In 2004, TUC established the Coldwater Conservation Fund which provides funding for scientific rehabilitation programs and obtains matching funding from corporate sponsors. Education is also a major focus, aimed at both school programs and community groups. TUC works through local volunteer chapters; the charity estimates that it has 4,000 volunteers. TUC is also a membership-based organization.
TUC obtains a modest amount of its funding from various levels of government (11% in F2012) but the vast majority comes from individual and corporate donations. Conservation program spending was $1.0m in F2012, down from $1.3m in F2011. The charity has twelve full-time employees. CEO Jeff Surtees is a lawyer with an extensive environmental background; he joined TUC in 2010.
TUC has negative funding reserves, making the charity dependent on continued support from donors at levels similar to prior years. Administrative costs are 21% of revenue and fundraising costs 35% of donations and special events (including expenses for fundraising dinners).
