Canada-British Columbia Southern Mountain Caribou (Central Group) Protection Study

Conserving wildlife is integral to Canada’s natural environment and supports our health and economy. The Government of Canada is committed to working with the provinces, territories, Indigenous peoples and stakeholders to manage and support the recovery of species at risk.

The Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Honourable Catherine McKenna, and the Honourable Mary Polak, Minister of Environment for British Columbia, released today the final report from a jointly-conducted study on the protection of Southern Mountain Caribou and their habitat.

The full report is available below and is open to public comment for a period of 30 days.

The study will inform provincial and federal decision-making with respect to the ongoing protection and recovery of Southern Mountain Caribou and its critical habitat.

Comments received will be used to inform BC's subsequent management plans and actions and the federal decision-making process, but will not be incorporated into the Study itself except to correct factually inaccurate information.

Consultation period: 2017-02-24 to 2017-03-26
