Recovery Strategy for the Pacific Water Shrew (Sorex bendirii) in Canada
2014

Under the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk (1996), the federal, provincial, and territorial governments agreed to work together on legislation, programs, and policies to protect wildlife species at risk throughout Canada.

In the spirit of cooperation of the Accord, the Government of British Columbia has given permission to the Government of Canada to adopt the Recovery Strategy for the Pacific Water Shrew (Sorex bendirii) in British Columbia (Part 2), under Section 44 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Environment Canada has included an addition which completes the SARA requirements for this recovery strategy, and excludes the section on Socio-Economic Considerations. Socio-economic factors are not part of the consideration process for federal recovery strategies developed under SARA. These factors are kept isolated from this strategic phase of recovery planning.

The federal recovery strategy for the Pacific Water Shrew in Canada consists of two parts:

Part 1: Federal Addition to the Recovery Strategy for the Pacific Water Shrew (Sorex bendirii) in British Columbia, prepared by Environment Canada.

Part 2: Recovery Strategy for the Pacific Water Shrew (Sorex bendirii) in British Columbia, prepared by the Pacific Water Shrew Recovery Team for the British Columbia Ministry of Environment.
