Why donate to the MSA?

All contributions made to the MSA are used to fund general operations, on-the-river programs, and research activities aimed at protecting, preserving and enhancing the wild Atlantic salmon and its habitat in the Miramichi watershed. As a non-profit charitable organization, the MSA relies on the generous contributions of its supporters to fund its ongoing conservation work. Depending on the currency of your donation, you will be issued a Canadian or US tax receipt by mail.
