Join the Discussion: Update Our Watershed Action Plans

We’ve been hosting discussions with technical experts, First Nations, stakeholders and community members to help update our Coastal Region Watershed Action Plans. The 2011 Action Plans guide our funding decisions and are the basis for determining the conservation and enhancement projects we support.

The renewed Watershed Action Plans will be complete by fall 2017, and will provide strategic direction for the next five years.  Draft Watershed Action Plans will be posted here for review and comment before being finalized.

Stay informed. Subscribe to FWCP news and we’ll let you know when the draft and final Watershed Action Plan is available.

Our Coastal Region includes 14 watersheds on Vancouver Island, in the Lower Mainland, and select Coastal and Interior watersheds impacted by BC Hydro dams.
