Action for Healthy Communities: Benefits of a Provincial Law for Ecosystem Health

Thursday, September 8, 2022

Join West Coast Environmental Law for a webinar exploring how a new provincial law for biodiversity and ecosystem health can benefit local governments and communities in BC.

In this 1-hour discussion ahead of the 2022 Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) Conference, West Coast's Executive Director & Senior Counsel Jessica Clogg will introduce findings from a discussion paper delving into the benefits of BC's promised legislation for ecosystem health. We'll also hear from local government councillors about why they feel biodiversity and ecosystem health are essential for municipalities, and about the motions they have passed or brought forward to UBCM to advocate for a new provincial law.
