Provincial government seeking comments on draft woodland caribou range plan
The Government of Saskatchewan is asking the public for feedback on a draft range plan for woodland caribou in the central portion of the province’s Boreal Plain (SK2 Central). The 60-day review period runs from October 30 to December 29, 2017.
The boreal population of woodland caribou is listed as a “threatened” species under the federal Species at Risk Act. The plan identifies objectives, measures, tools and targets to manage woodland caribou habitat to support healthy populations, along with several management actions and approaches.
The goal of the Saskatchewan Woodland Caribou Range Plan is to achieve a self-sustaining woodland caribou population by maintaining and improving habitat, while allowing for continued economic growth in northern Saskatchewan.

Please send all written comments to the following address:

Submissions and comments can also be emailed to: email@example.com.
Submissions will be accepted until the deadline on December 29, 2017.
Environment and Climate Change Canada will receive the draft plan during the same period as the public review. Once the 60-day review period is complete, all comments will be carefully reviewed and considered.
The plan will be revised as necessary to reflect public feedback and submitted for further discussion with the federal government.
