The Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia and 17 First Nations are working together to develop a marine protected area network in the Northern Shelf Bioregion (NSB), which extends from the top of Vancouver Island (Quadra Island/ Bute Inlet) and reaches north to the Canada – Alaska border.
The NSB Marine Protected Area Network planning process aims to build a network of marine protected areas (MPAs) that will help to ensure that future generations will inherit the beauty and productivity of our Pacific Ocean.
The success of conserving and protecting special marine areas is a shared responsibility. We look forward to hearing from all those who work, live, or have an interest in the NSB and its future, to complete a network of MPAs for the Pacific Coast of Canada.
