Watershed Security Strategy and Fund Intentions Paper

Engagement summary

Keeping our water and watersheds safe is one of the most important things we can do to have a healthier future for all living things. Throughout 2022, the Province has been working on ideas about a Watershed Security Strategy and Fund to make sure water and watersheds in B.C. are kept safe and respected.

The Province is now inviting input on a Watershed Security Strategy through an Intentions Paper. The Intentions Paper sets out how the government wants to take action on water and watersheds in B.C. It presents five policy intentions with several themes and example actions that could be taken to better care for our watersheds, including the plants, animals, and people in them.
