Intended Results

This MaPP planning process produced marine plans for Haida Gwaii, North Coast, Central Coast and North Vancouver Island. These plans will be accompanied by implementation agreements that lay out specific guidance for day-to-day operations and marine use decisions in the plan area.

Partner First Nations and the Province of British Columbia share planning priorities including:

  • Collaboration between governments
  • An ecosystem-based management (EBM) approach that strives to balance ecological and human needs including:
    • Integrated Economic Strategies
    • Marine Protection
    • Climate Change
    • Cumulative Effects

The MaPP initiative was established to promote collaboration between governments and sectors on all planning products. Public engagement and input were central to the process.
