What was this engagement about?
BC Hydro requested amendments to the boundaries of Elk Falls Provincial Park for a proposed hydro project. The proposal ensured that there is an overall net increase in the area of the park through land additions in other areas of the park after project completion. All proposals to amend the boundaries of provincial parks are reviewed under the Provincial Protected Areas Boundary Adjustment Policy, Process and Guidelines.
How did my contribution make a difference?
Public comments were an important consideration for the Ministry of Environment in deciding whether to amend the boundaries of the park. Residents were encouraged to read the materials related to the proposal and share their thoughts.
