Website opens consultation on angling, hunting regulations

permanent public engagement website will provide opportunity to review and comment on proposed angling, hunting and trapping regulations

A new, permanent public engagement website will give British Columbians an opportunity to review and comment on proposed angling, hunting and trapping regulations.

Regulations for angling, hunting and trapping are reviewed and developed every two years, with alternating years for fish and for wildlife. The website ensures the public can review and submit comments on proposed regulations, over and above government’s regular face-to-face stakeholder consultations.

 

The website http://a100.gov.bc.ca/pub/ahte/ is part of the ministry’s ongoing efforts to enhance public engagement and create a more efficient and productive regulations-development process. New angling, hunting and trapping advisory teams have also been created to guide regulations development in collaboration with stakeholders.
