What is RAPP?

The Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) program is a toll free tip-line and web-based service that allows you to report known or suspected violations of fisheries, wildlife, or environmental protection laws – anonymously and without risk of confronting the offender.

If you have just witnessed a serious violation:
Call 1-877-952-7277 (RAPP) or #7277 on the TELUS Mobility Network.

If the situation is not an emergency:
Report the incident online or contact the nearest Conservation Officer Service district office.

For fisheries violations related to salmon:
Contact Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) at 1-800-465-4336.

The RAPP hotline should also be used to report wildlife-human interactions where public safety may be at risk.
