What We Do

The Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC) is a collaborative-based organization committed to reducing the spread and impacts of non-native species within BC.

Working together with a large group of partners, Regional Committees, ISCBC members and government agencies and industry, we succeed in our mission by:

1. Organizing and uniting efforts

We know our goal of minimizing the spread and impact of invasive species is an ambitious one. Which is why we’re a membership-based organization that goes out of its way to engage with our partners, funders and a diverse group of industry stakeholders. There are several ways we ensure that diverse opinions are heard including:

2. Educating and informing

We take every opportunity we can to illustrate the consequences and negative impacts of invasive species to people and organizations across BC, using a variety of resources and programs such as PlantWise and Clean Drain Dry.

3. Researching

By helping coordinate research and share the findings through ISCBC Research Forums and live webinars, we’re helping key people up-to-date on the latest information.

4. Training

We offer training programs with different levels of detail around identification, reporting, inventory and management of invasive species for both public and private organizations.
