Wetland Ways

Wetland Ways: Interim Guidelines for Wetland Protection and Conservation in British Columbia is a series of guidelines and best practices to help build a comprehensive model for wetland conservation in B.C.

These guidelines are intended to avoid and minimize impacts on wetlands on both private and public lands. The document provides general and sector-specific guidelines for wetland protection addressing the unique needs and impacts, as well as management and regulatory considerations, of various industries and groups.

Wetland Ways is intended for people involved in some form of planning activity or development near wetlands, as well as those looking for guidance on the best ways to maintain the high ecological values in these areas.

These interim guidelines were prepared with input from many experienced reviewers and will be updated using feedback and experience from pilot user groups. We encourage and welcome comments on these guidelines to wsp@gov.bc.ca.
