The six technical papers in this volume constitute a key deliverable for a project reporting on the coastal environment of British Columbia and cover the following topics: population and economic activity; climate change; industrial contaminants; ecosystem protection; biodiversity; and fisheries. The project started in 2004 and was planned and funded in collaboration with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the University of British Columbia Fisheries Centre, and the University of Victoria Geography Department, with key contributions from Environment Canada. The reporting focused on a region extending westward from the height of the Coast Mountains and included the marine area within Canada's 200-mile limit. Each paper provides an overview of the issues, a set of indicators, and a summary of results. Each paper also contains a section describing what is being done to address the issues and a section with suggestions for what individuals can do. The indicators in the reports were selected and developed in consultation with scientists and technical experts as well as representatives of target audiences. Each indicator includes background information, data sources, and a description of the methods of analysis, including caveats and assumptions.--Includes text from document

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is an update to the 2007 Inventory of Air Quality Bylaws in British Columbia. It is intended to serve as a resource for local governments to create or further develop legislation to improve local air quality. This report focuses on vehicle idling, open burning, and wood burning appliance bylaws, which have been identified as particular areas of concern due to their impacts on local air quality and public health. All municipalities and regional districts in BC were contacted to gather information on the air quality bylaws they have created or updated since 2007. Additional information was collected on the enforcement, compliance and education activities pertaining to these bylaws. Results indicate an increasing number of air quality bylaws in BC, but also illuminate issues of inconsistency across the province, as well as difficulties with enforcement

Grizzly bear population inventory & monitoring strategy for British Columbia by Clayton Apps( )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) is an iconic species of high public profile, and grizzly bear management garners attention from local to international levels. As with other species, effective conservation of grizzly bears requires understanding of population abundance, distribution and connectivity and the factors that influence associated trends through space and time. This is particularly relevant to grizzly bears given their demonstrated sensitivity to anthropogenic impacts and the need to ensure sustainability of any population harvest or other human-caused mortality

"On November 20, 2007, the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act made B.C. the first jurisdiction in North America to make a legally binding commitment to carbon neutral operations. The passing of the Act tasked British Columbians to take concrete action to reduce provincial emissions. In doing so it demonstrated the government's leadership and willingness to put its own house in order as it set aggressive province-wide targets. This report fulfills a legislated requirement to report on emissions related to carbon neutral government business travel in 2008 of over 34,000 tonnes CO2 and associated offsets worth $860,000. It includes plans to reduce GHGs in the future and actions taken in 2008 across the public sector -- and represents the actions of over 150 organizations. It highlights some of the key activities in each sector and individual detailed reports are available online"--Executive summary, p. 5
