Business Plan

In the 2017 - 2021 Business Plan, we share with you our five-year strategic roadmap. It outlines the future direction of the Council based on our successful track record in bringing invasive species to a new level of awareness in BC. As one of our key mid- to long-range planning tools, this plan guides the activities and priorities of the Council toward clearly defined and measurable outcomes. We design more specific plans to articulate how we’ll achieve those outcomes, i.e., communications and fund development plans, annual work plans and operating plans. By implementing this business plan and by reporting out at regular intervals, the Council can demonstrate clear progress toward creating a British Columbia with healthy landscapes and communities that are free of invasive species.
