We need the ocean.

Now the ocean needs us.

The beauty and health of our coast is under threat from climate change and human activities.
The Marine Protected Area network (MPAn) is a collaborative, holistic approach to protect British
Columbia’s Northern Shelf bioregion and our future.

Protect. Prosper. Preserve.

The Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia and partner First Nations are seeking your input on a draft Network Action Plan. To review the draft NAP and its supporting documents, please go to the Network Action Plan page

There, you will find the draft Action Plan, the supporting compendium documents, an action plan summary, and the link to provide spatial input on an interactive map or  through surveys. See the events page and  interactive map for updates on the next sessions so you can be part of the process.
