Invasive Species Strategy for BC

The Invasive Species Strategy for British Columbia (the ‘Strategy’) completed in May 2012, is a strategic framework for improved invasive species management in British Columbia. It offers a foundation for invasive species work across BC and is the basis for our programs and efforts. As the 5-year implementation period drew to a close at the end of 2016, there is a need to both measure the success of the last five-year period and seek input from stakeholders across the province on the revision of the Strategy.

DRAFT INVASIVE SPECIES STRATEGY FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA (2018-2022)

Invasive Species Strategy for British Columbia was developed as a strategic framework for improved invasive species management in British Columbia and provides a foundation for invasive species work across BC and guide our programs and efforts.

In our role as Secretariat of the Strategy, the ISCBC has incorporated input from stakeholder sessions to update the Strategy for 2018-2022. This document is reflective of the invasive species goals and objectives for BC for the next five-year period.
