The first phase of engagement was held from May 22 to July 31, 2018. We received over 1,100 comments through the website discussion and close to 50 written submissions.

This phase sought perspectives from Indigenous peoples, rural communities, wildlife and habitat organizations, natural resource development industry stakeholders and the public on the issues and concerns they believe should be considered in any new approaches to wildlife management and habitat conservation.
