Caribou engagement sessions planned for Peace Region

Taylor MacIntyre


This afternoon (Tuesday, March 26, 2019), the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development released a press statement, saying that Caribou engagement sessions have been planned for the Peace Region. 
Residents are encouraged to attend to give their feedback on two draft agreements.
With the goal of preserving the southern mountain caribou populations, the agreements were created by the province of B.C., the government of Canada, West Moberly First Nations, and Saulteau First Nations.
The documents set a framework for collaboration between the provincial and federal governments to recover the declining species.
Members of the government, West Moberly First Nations and Saulteau First Nations will be in attendance to share information and to answer questions. 
Local feedback collected from these sessions will assist in the final agreements. 
The community engagement sessions are scheduled for:
