Schedule 2

Schedule 2 – Explanatory Note

COSEWIC has been assessing species since 1977. In October 1999 COSEWIC adopted new assessment criteria. When SARA was proclaimed, only those species that had been assessed according to these new criteria were included on Schedule 1. To ensure that the remaining species at risk would be re-assessed within an appropriate timeframe, they were all included in SARA with the addition of Schedule 2 and Schedule 3. At the proclamation of SARA in 2003, Schedule 2 comprised 39 endangered and threatened species.

COSEWIC has since reassessed all the species on Schedule 2 using the new criteria. After species on Schedules 2 and 3 are reassessed and found to be at risk, they undergo the SARA listing process. Following consultations, the Minister makes a recommendation to Governor in Council; Governor in Council then decides on whether or not they should be added to Schedule 1, the List of Wildlife Species at Risk. The protection and/or conservation measures afforded by SARA apply only to species once they are on Schedule 1.
