Boreal Caribou Protection and Recovery Plan



What is this engagement about?

The Province is seeking feedback on the draft Boreal Caribou Protection & Recovery Plan (BCPRP). The draft BCPRP outlines a recovery path for four of the five boreal caribou ranges in B.C.: Calendar, Maxhamish, Snake-Sahtahneh, and Westside Fort Nelson. It defines recovery objectives, establishes a foundation upon which management decisions will be based, and outlines habitat and population management actions deemed necessary to reverse caribou population declines.

The BCPRP was co-developed by the B.C. government and Fort Nelson First Nation, in collaboration with the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality. In addition to the online posting and feedback, engagement opportunities for stakeholders and communities in Northeast B.C. are scheduled to share information and provide feedback throughout the engagement process.

How to participate:

An online feedback form provides multiple-choice questions with opportunities for written feedback. All British Columbians, including employers, employees, organizations, professionals, and Indigenous communities are invited to complete the feedback form.

Written submissions will be accepted from organisations and stakeholders in Word or PDF format.

Please visit the engagement site for information and links: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/caribou/boreal-caribou

Feedback will be accepted until 4pm (PT) on May 20th, 2022.


How can my contribution make a difference?

Feedback provided through this public engagement process will be taken into consideration as the draft plan is revised. It will be made available to appropriate decision-makers (pertaining to boreal caribou recovery management measures) for their consideration. Following this public engagement process, a “What We Heard” report summarizing the feedback will be shared with stakeholders and posted online. 

All submissions will be read as part of this engagement process.
