Senior GPS Rental Service

Fish Habitat Restoration & Education Program

Make your next outdoor adventure safe with BCWF!

Fishing and exploring the outdoors can be an enjoyable pastime and a way to relax for many of us. If you are a senior (55+) in British Columbia who wants to explore all the fishing opportunities B.C. has to offer, the B.C. Wildlife Federation is launching a free SPOT GPS rental service for 2021. With this service, we ensure that you and your loved ones feel safe while you explore the outdoors. This service is exclusive to seniors in B.C. aged 55 and over.

When you borrow a SPOT Gen3, you will be given a critical line of contact when traveling beyond service boundaries. With the push of a button, the SPOT Gen3 will let your family and friends know that you are okay, or in the case of an emergency, responders will be notified and dispatched to your location. Additionally, with the SPOT Mapping feature, you can share your current whereabouts or save your favourite locations. For more information about this service, or to request a free rental, please fill out the form below and we will contact you within 48 hours for further information needed to complete the rental.
