The public is invited to a community engagement session in Cranbrook on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, to provide feedback on two draft agreements to conserve southern mountain caribou populations.
The two draft agreements have been developed under Section 11 of the federal Species at Risk Act.
A draft Section 11 agreement between British Columbia and Canada sets a framework for co-operation between the two governments to recover southern mountain caribou.
A draft partnership agreement between B.C., Canada, West Moberly and Saulteau First Nations proposes specific habitat protection and restoration measures to recover the central group herds of southern mountain caribou.
Staff from the provincial and federal governments will share information about the draft agreements and will be available to answer questions.
To provide feedback that will help to inform the final agreements, the public is invited to attend the following session:
Tuesday, April 30, 2019
5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort
209 Van Horne St.
Overviews of the draft agreements, a feedback form, maps and general information are available online: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/caribou/section11agreement/
