Research and Reports

2023 National Survey Report In March 2023, CCIS conducted research on general invasive species awareness, behaviour change and pathways of spread for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. The final report is shared here.
Climate Change Report The Canadian Council on Invasive Species (CCIS) and the Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC) hosted the first National Invasive Species and Climate Change (NISCC) symposium from June 7 to 8, 2022. The virtual symposium gathered policymakers, researchers, and practitioners to examine risks magnified by the interaction of climate change and invasive species.
Community Science Report In 2020, CCIS researched existing community science programs in Canada and beyond, including key strategies for success, lessons learned, challenges to better inform community science initiatives in Canada at both the local and national levels.
Canada's Unwanted Plants In 2019, CCIS developed a national unwanted plant list by cross-referencing Invasive plant lists from Invasive species councils across Canada as well as regulated species lists. Not all of the species are currently widespread in the gardening, horticulture or landscaping trade, but are still of high concern across Canada and could be traded among gardeners or the horticulture community.
Recreational Pathways Survey In 2018, CCIS conducted a survey of Canadians on three pathways (firewood movement, land-based recreation, and use of watercraft) through which invasive species spread.
