Each Taking Action program is focused on stopping the spread of invasive species through a high risk ‘pathway’ and with a key target audience. 

Each Taking Action Program will seek to identify, confirm and work with:

  • Organizational Partners, including Chapters - those that have selected to adopt and deliver a Changing Behaviour Program(s)
  • Contributing Partner - those that have committed to support a Changing Behaviour Program through program and/or resources, including financial


By working with Supporters and Partners, the Canadian Council on Invasive Species aims to ensure that each Taking Action program:

  • Demonstrates a steady increase of partner organizations that have adopted and implemented each program across Canada
  • Is financially self sustaining by 2020 including achieving annual revenue targets for sponsors
  • Links to an annual growth in membership in the Canadian Council on Invasive Species
  • Annually Increases the number of local Partners in each region of Canada
  • Relevant to all regions of Canada.


Encouraging a growing the number of individuals is fundamental to a successful behaviour change program. Across Canada, especially within key target groups and youth, the aim is to have responsible individuals gain awareness and personally ‘adopt’ a behaviour change program.  

  • Supporters are individuals who pledge to adopt behaviour change(s)
