Natural Resource Management Framework

The Metro Vancouver region contains provincially, nationally and globally significant natural areas that contribute ecological goods and services vital to the well-being of local communities. 

The Natural Resource Management Framework provides strategic direction for managing the natural resources within regional parks. It is guided by the principles of ecosystem-based management, adaptive management, the precautionary principle and collaboration.

It sets out the strategies to achieve these high level goals:

Goal 1: Ensure ecosystem health and long-term resiliency to conserve diverse biological communities and their associated habitats.

Goal 2: Provide opportunities for the public to connect with natural areas while conserving the integrity and resilience of ecosystems.

Goal 3: Provide opportunities for public involvement in natural resource management through partnerships and stewardship activities.

To find out more about how we plan to achieve those goals, please take a look at the framework document.
