Boating Industry Aquatic Invasive Species Workshops

The Ministry of Environment (MOE), in partnership with ISCBC, will be hosting free workshops for members of the boating industry this April. Anyone involved with the boating industry is welcome, including marina owners and staff, commercial boat haulers, marine operators and boat dealers. The purpose of the 90 minute workshop is to collaborate with boating industry professionals and raise awareness about aquatic invasive species (AIS). Content will include the Clean Drain Dry program, legislation, decontamination and quarantine protocols, requirements of boaters and how to work with MOE. If you are involved in the boating industry, join us to help continue to prevent the introduction and spread of AIS through recreational boating.


The workshops will be held in the following locations:

  • North Vancouver: April 4th, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm PST at Delbrook Community Recreation Centre 
  • Kelowna: April 19th, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm PST at Best Western Plus Kelowna Hotel & Suites
