Saltwater stories from the coast

On November, 2020 the BC government committed to developing a BC Coastal Marine Strategy to better protect coastal habitat while growing coastal economies.

British Columbia is one of the only coastal regions in North America without a strategic, united plan and law to protect it. The Atlantic provinces and neighbouring Pacific coast states have had comprehensive coastal plans in place for years. But the BC coast is overseen by a hodge-podge of provincial laws, regulations, ministries and departments and that puts the coast we love at risk.
