Canada and British Columbia southern mountain caribou protection study 2017: chapter 1
6. Anticipated next steps
The results of the Protection Study are already informing steps being taken by the federal government and British Columbia to protect and recover Southern Mountain Caribou and its critical habitat. The Province of British Columbia has announced funding for recovery of caribou in British Columbia (B.C. commits $27 million to enhance caribou recovery). Environment and Climate Change Canada is currently using the results of the Protection Study, along with additional information, to conduct a formal assessment, under the Species at Risk Act, of the protection in place for Southern Mountain Caribou in British Columbia. Though the Protection Study is now complete, the federal government and British Columbia are continuing their collaborative efforts to recover Southern Mountain Caribou.
