Updated goals for caribou recovery will require fresh ways to motivate people to comply with regulations. Generally, compliance is preferable to enforcement. Education and conversations with land users, stakeholders and the public encourage compliance. Enforcement will be required at times.
We will work on a natural resource sector-wide caribou compliance and enforcement strategy, building on existing roles and policies, with plans for enforcement and monitoring in specific areas. Recreational use, poaching, access control, forestry and mining will require much interaction for enforcement staff. We will develop an overall compliance and enforcement strategy that focuses on caribou and habitat.
