InvasivesBC is British Columbia’s modernized invasive species database, map and mobile data collection application that was made available in 2023.
On this page:
The InvasivesBC database, map and mobile data collection application is available for use by all land managers, contractors, government agencies and non-profit organizations completing surveys and/or management actions on invasive species in B.C.
InvasivesBC replaces the Invasive Alien Plant Program (IAPP), which was B.C.’s previous provincial mapping and database application in use from 2005-2023. The Province is committed to maintaining a shared invasive species map and database application. A centralized location for invasive species information supports increased collaboration among the diverse user community and more effective invasive species management throughout B.C.
InvasivesBC contains invasive species occurrence, treatment, and monitoring records for the entire province. The data can be searched using a large number of criteria, and exported into a variety of summary reports.

The Invasive Plant Program and our InvasivesBC development team will be continuing to work to provide support to users and continue to build additional features into future releases over the coming years. As new features become available, they will be listed on this webpage.
