CHETWYND, B.C. – Tonight is the first of four meetings, set for public engagement on Caribou Recovery in the Peace River Region.

The Engagement Sessions are hosted by the B.C. Government as a way to consult with the public to review the two draft Caribou Recovery Agreements. These sessions are an opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback on the draft Section 11 Agreement and the draft Partnership Agreement. The two draft agreements have been developed under section 11 of the federal Species at Risk Act.

According to the Government, the draft Partnership Agreement between B.C., Canada, West Moberly and Saulteau First Nations addresses specific habitat protection and restoration measures to recover the central group herds of southern mountain caribou.
