Alberta Trappers Compensation Program


DEADLINE is Dec 31, 2019 for Cabin loss claims in the 2019 fires  

The ATCP is a program of the Government of Alberta’s Ministry of Environment and Parks (AEP) that provides a framework for compensating trappers for business losses incurred through industrial activity on their RFMAs when they are not able to reach a settlement with industry. Incidences of theft and vandalism to assets on RFMAs are also considered.

Partners in the program include the Alberta Trappers' Association (ATA), the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), Small Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (SEPAC), Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA), Alberta Forest Products Association (AFPA), and ATCO.

Funding for the ATCP is provided by Public Lands through levies on land dispositions, as well as from direct contributions from CAPP, SEPAC, CEPA, AFPA and ATCO.


The ATA provides administrative support to the program.

If you have any questions about this program or the claims process and need additional information,

please do not hesitate to contact the ATA office
or Ken Bailey, the Alberta Trappers’ Compensation Program Co-ordinator (780-990-4879).
