Natural Resources Advisory Council (NRAC) of Trout Unlimited Canada
There are many complex issues facing Canada’s freshwater ecosystems and their coldwater resources and NRAC has been established to assist TUC with the development of positions, policies and programs to help fulfill TUC’s mandate, based on the best science and experience available.
The Natural Resources Advisory Council (NRAC) under its former name of the National Resource Board, was initially established in 2004 by Trout Unlimited Canada to help to develop a National Conservation Agenda for TUC. The National Conservation Agenda was finalized in 2006 and continues to provide the long-term conservation objectives, policies and programs in support of TUC’s mission.
The mandate of NRAC is to provide sound scientific, policy and program advice to TUC’s Board, staff, chapters and members. The Council is composed of long-term TUC members with expertise in science and policy as well as representatives of some of the National and Regional CNGO’s with whom TUC often works.
