About CRAC

The Chilliwack River Action Committee is a community based, volunteer, non profit, umbrella society, made up representatives from local environmental associations and the public with the purpose to organize and administer environmental projects for the protection of the Chilliwack River Watershed. We have an elected Board of Directors and no regular paid staff. We formed in 1997 to deal with the problem of river siltation caused by eroding clay slides. We became a registered BC Society on October 8, 1998 and are now registered with Canada Customs and Revenue Agency and designated as a charitable organization for issuing official income tax receipts. Our mission is to preserve the health and sustainability of the Chilliwack River Watershed and its fish resources for future generations to enjoy.
