Canada is world-renowned for our rich aquatic and marine environments, providing habitat for an incredible range of wildlife and amazing opportunities for recreation and economic activity. However, invasive species are threatening Canada’s aquatic ecosystems and the species that rely on them. Boaters and the boating industry are key partners in preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS).
Participating marinas will promote and endorse boater best management practices (BMPs) for preventing the spread of AIS for all clients. Participating marinas will receive public recognition through onsite signage and media coverage, promotion on the CCIS website, and recognition at events.
The Invasive-wise Marina’s program is still being developed, as it grows more resources and partnership opportunities will be available in the future.
