Healthy landscapes and communities free of invasive species.


To take action to build healthy landscapes, including habitats and communities, through education and responsible practices to prevent the spread of invasive species. 

Invasive species affect all British Columbians

Invasive species are plants, animals or other organisms that are not native to BC whose introduction and spread causes harm to the province’s native species or our economy. This harm has a lasting effect on the lives of residents and visitors to the province, in some cases resulting in the eradication of native BC species or costing the economy millions of dollars annually.

Changes needed to slow the spread

The ISCBC relies heavily on the interest and involvement of its volunteer members who are committed to resisting the introduction and spread of invasive species across BC. As a registered charity with a history of more than 10 years, we help coordinate and unite a wide variety of concerned stakeholders in efforts around:

  • Outreach and Education
  • Training
  • Operations
  • Research

ISCBC targets all aspects of invasive species management, working together with our partners to recognize and reduce the negative effects of invasive species. 


Experienced members of the ISCBC team bring their enthusiasm to our work.
