Last summer, Marine Harvest Canada's (MHC) salmon barbeque trailer was proud to have cooked up over $15,000 of support for local charities on Vancouver Island. We're now looking forward to booking fundraising events for summer 2013!
MHC is now accepting applications from charities and societies located on mid-north Vancouver Island. Applications deadline is March 15, 2013.
