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.

On February 24, 2017 the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Honourable Catherine McKenna, and the Honourable Mary Polak, Minister of Environment for British Columbia, released the final report from a jointly-conducted study on the protection of Southern Mountain Caribou and their habitat.

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.

The full report is available now and was open to public comment for a period of 30 days (from February 24th to March 26, 2017).

As a result of comments received, factual corrections to the Protection Study have been made. The changes made can be found here. The final version of the Protection Study is available here.

These comments will be taken into consideration as the federal government and BC proceed with decision making with respect to the ongoing protection and recovery of southern mountain caribou.

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