Coastal Strategy for the West Coast of Vancouver Island
Federal, Provincial, Nuu-chah-nulth and local governments gave West Coast Aquatic a mandate to produce an integrated strategy to improve the health and wealth of the west coast.
To accomplish this mandate, WCA produced and finalized a Coastal Strategy in 2012 that includes:
A shared set of values to guide actions and decisions
A vision, goals, and objectives
Priority action areas.
The Strategy received letters of endorsement from four levels of government and all of the major sectors represented at the Board, and has guided the work of West Coast Aquatic and its partners.
The Coastal Strategy, now 10 years old, will undergo a refresh in 2022. The refresh will also help inform the BC wide Coastal Marine Strategy, which is under development by the Province of BC.
