surrounding invasive plant management in BC (Take our Questionnaire).

Background on the RCE Committee:

The IPCBC has established five committees to provide input and expertise on key Council actions as outlined in the Invasive Plant Strategy for BC. The Regulation, Compliance and Enforcement (RCE) Committee was formed to strive for improved compliance with existing policy and to recommend legislative and regulatory change where compliance has been unsuccessful.

The RCE Committee Goal:

It is the goal of the Regulation, Compliance and Enforcement (RCE) Committee to improve the management of invasive plants in BC by ensuring that existing legislation, regulation and policy within all jurisdictions is integrated and functioning effectively and efficiently.

The RCE Committee is currently reviewing the effectiveness of the current legislative framework surrounding invasive plant management in BC and Canada - and we would like your perspective! Your input will serve to improve invasive plant management in BC and Canada by contributing to an impartial review of the effectiveness of the current legislative framework.

Purpose of This Questionnaire:

The RCE Committee is seeking to gather input on the effectiveness of current legislation, regulation and policy relating to invasive plant management in BC and Canada. Your responses will be compiled and used to guide a review of the current legislative framework.
