Invasive species councils, committees, and coalitions representing the majority of provinces and territories in Canada have established as a federal society to work together to reduce the impact of invasive species across the country.
The Canadian Council on Invasive Species (CCIS) works collaboratively across jurisdictional boundaries to support actions and information that can help reduce the threat and impacts of invasive species.
Our CCIS Board of Directors.
Originally named the 'National Invasive Species Working Group,' this working group formed as a result of a joint meeting early in 2009 where 10 provinces and two territories voiced the desire to share knowledge across Canadian borders, as invasive species ‘know no boundaries.’
