MaPP is a partnership between the Province of B.C. and First Nations to develop and implement marine plans for the North Pacific Coast waters with advice from stakeholders and the public. Marine plans were completed in April 2015.
The MaPP planning area is divided into four sub-regions, each of which has a technical team composed of marine planning and geographic information system (GIS) experts. Their work is supported by the best available traditional and local knowledge, scientific data and technical information. Two co-leads, who represent the two partner groups, lead each sub-regional team in the development of the sub-regional plan and will coordinate plan implementation.
MaPP co-leads for the North Coast sub-region are:
