Alberta Caribou Section 11 Agreement

“I am pleased to inform you that the governments of Canada and Alberta have signed a conservation agreement under the Species at Risk Act, which commits to taking the necessary steps to support the recovery of woodland caribou in Alberta. The Government of Alberta, along with Indigenous peoples, industry stakeholders and many others, has taken steps to support caribou recovery, and I believe this agreement will help meet the obligations of future generations of Canadians. The Government of Canada recognizes that this collaborative approach – contrary to an injunction under the Species at Risk Act – is at this stage the best way to preserve and re-daisy boreal and southern caribou in Alberta. ” – The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Government of Canada, consider the possibilities of adapting the Master Schedule of Standards and Conditions, in case of zoning or similar approaches for woodland caribou mountains. ”┬áThis agreement with the federal government is consistent with Alberta`s commitment to end decades of uncertainty about caribou land recovery and use. Our Division 11 negotiated agreement puts Alberta`s needs first, instead of being in injunctions under the Species at Risk Act. The Government of Alberta will continue to work with our many partners to develop reasonable solutions to protect caribou populations, preserve jobs and promote the local economy. Albertans want to ensure their communities have access to caribou restoration solutions that work. That is why I have created three Caribou task forces, made up of people involved in these important caribou areas. The agreement also builds on the momentum created last year by the Alberta government through its sub-regional caribou task forces and sets out timetables for the work of the task forces, including the consideration of social, economic and environmental values when consulting on sub-regional plans.
