CAFO Becomes A Member of the Species At Risk Advisory Committee

In April 2017 CAFO joined over 30 industry, environmental and Indigenous organizations to form the Minister of Environment and Climate Change’s Species at Risk Advisory Committee. The committee met twice in 2017 and plans are in place to meet in late May 2018.

CAFO is active on two of five Working Groups that deal with Multi-Species, Place-Based approaches to species at risk and Knowledge Plan which is examining the availability and use of data, data sharing and the protection of proprietary information.

CAFO was recognized by Minister McKenna for our “knowledgeable and enthusiastic engagement” at the Species at Risk Advisory Committee forum held as part of the April 2017 SARAC meeting. The Minister expressed appreciation for the high caliber of discussion, the collaborative approach and expertise shown by committee members.
