Thank you!

Partners and supporters

We could not accomplish our goals without the generous support of our donors, sponsors and supporters. It’s because of them that we can ensure local kids have hands on experiences in nature and that environmental stewardship activities continue in the Port Moody area.

This year, with the support of the Port Moody Community Foundation, we received a sizable grant from  the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund. This grant has enabled us to launch a new website and other digital tools, as well as hire an additional part-time program manager. 



Thank you to all of our partners and supporters, including those that have made significant contributions to Mossom Creek Hatchery & Education Centre and supported the work of the Burrard Inlet Marine Enhancement Society.

Mossom Creek Hatchery & Education Rebuild Project


The Mossom Creek Hatchery building was devastated by a fire on December 11th, 2013. Burrard Inlet Marine Enhancement Society (BIMES) executive and hatchery volunteers have profound gratitude for the outpouring of community kindness since the fire.  Together along with many supporters, we’ve successfully rebuilt the Mossom Creek Hatchery and Education Centre and re-opened the centre in May of 2015.

We’d like to acknowledge the generous contributions of the following sponsors, donors and contributors:
