Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program – Results

Engagement Summary

The Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) sought input on draft priority actions from a broad range of perspectives to help update Columbia Region Action Plans.

Action Plans guide FWCP investments in fish and wildlife projects, and are referenced annually by regional Boards to track progress toward implementation, set annual priorities, and guide decision-making in setting out and approving the annual operating plan for each region. Actions in Action Plans are eligible for FWCP funding and align with the FWCP’s vision, mission, and geographic scope.

Engagement Timeframe

Input Received

The FWCP hosted afternoon technical workshops and evening open houses in Valemount, Golden, Revelstoke, Nakusp, Castlegar, Kaslo, Fernie and Cranbrook, along with two online information sessions, to discuss draft priority actions and species of interest. An online feedback form was also available.

Input leads to action:

Input received was reviewed and considered in the final draft action plans that were the basis of a final public review from July 21 to August 6, 2019.

Final updated Action Plans will include priority actions that support the FWCP’s vision, mission and strategic objectives. Final, updated Action Plans are scheduled for completion in August 2019.
