Provincial Survey to Measure Success of the Strategy (2012-2016)

After the Strategy was released in Spring 2012, an advisory group was assembled by the ISCBC and Inter-Ministry Invasive Species Working Group (IMISWG) with representatives from Aboriginal, federal, local governments as well as regional invasive species councils. The advisory group developed a Monitoring for Success Framework for the Strategy using the solutions and goals to develop indicators to measure success at the end of the five-year Strategy implementation period. Now it is time to see how we did and we need your help.

If you work on behalf of Aboriginal, federal, provincial and local/regional governments, regional invasive species committees, non-profits, community and stewardship groups, cross-border agencies, land managers, industry or you have generally been involved in invasive species management between 2012 - 2016, we greatly need your input.

The following survey has been developed based on the Monitoring for Success Framework for the Invasive Species Strategy of British Columbia (2012 - 2016). We invite individuals and organizations to complete the survey - please note only one organizational representative should complete the survey. Please take some time (approximately 20 - 45 minutes) to complete all questions that are relevant to your organization's work.

ISCBC will be providing a Strategic Summary of survey results to participants and it will be available online Spring 2017.

Note: It is very important that only one representative per organization fills out this survey on behalf of the organization. Please take the time to coordinate one organizational submission with your colleagues.

Deadline: Deadline has been extended from March 3rd to March 10th. Please complete the survey by 4 pm on March 24th, 2017.

Inquiries: Please send any questions on the Provincial Survey to measure the success of the Strategy (2012-2016) by email to Stephanie Woods at swoods@bcinvasives.ca
