Province of BC Drafts Biodiversity and Ecosystem Health Framework
BC has the greatest diversity of species, ecosystems and habitats of any jurisdiction in Canada. In order to further protect these aspects of BC, the Province is taking steps to prioritize ecosystem health and biodiversity by drafting the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Health Framework.
The draft framework was developed through engagement throughout 2023 with First Nations and other parties, including industry, non-governmental organizations, local communities, municipal leaders and academia. The Province is formally consulting with First Nations Rights and Title Holders, and engaging with multiple natural resource sectors and industry, as well as local governments, and other partners on the draft framework.
