Join the Discussion: Update Our Watershed Action Plans

We’re talking with technical experts, First Nations, stakeholders and community members about updating our 14 Coastal Region Watershed Action Plans developed in 2011. Six workshops have been held, and we’re planning five more in May 2017. Please join the discussion. Help us update the Action Plans that 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 more about the spring workshops and when the draft and final Watershed Action Plan is available.

Our Coastal Region

Our Coastal Region includes 14 watersheds on Vancouver Island, in the Lower Mainland, and select Coastal and Interior watersheds impacted by BC Hydro dams. Our work to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by BC Hydro dams in our Coastal Region is a voluntary initiative. In 2016-17 we invested approximately $1.9 million spread across 41 fish and wildlife projects. Learn more. Subscribe.
