In October 2003, Canada and the Province of British Columbia signed a Memorandum of Understanding committing the two governments to assesing the feasibility of a national marine conservation area in the southern Strait of Georgia area. In October 2011, a proposed boundary for this area was announced. The two governments are now conducting in-depth consultations with First Nations, stakeholders, communities and the public to generate feedback on both boundaries and their management. For further information on the proposed southern Strait of George national marine conservation area reserve, please click here.

What does the proposed national marine conservation area mean for your business? How will it impact transportation of goods and people in our region? Will the proposed conservation area influence recreational use of the region?

Join us for an informative presentation led by Nick Irving, Director of Marine Planning with Parks Canada to learn more about the proposal, its boundaries, and how it may impact you and your business. A question and answer period will follow.

Travelling east on Lansdowne Rd., turn left onto Beach Dr. Ripin Rd. will be on your right.
