To request the addition of an invasive alien plant species to the InvasivesBC application, the requestor must confirm the species is non-native to British Columbia and supply the following to the InvasivesBC Administrator at InvasivesBC@gov.bc.ca:
- Common and scientific name of species proposed for inclusion
- Reason for the request including:
- Information on the invasiveness of the species in B.C.
- Information on the invasiveness of the species in adjoining jurisdictions
Your request will be reviewed by the InvasivesBC Administrator and forwarded to the Inter-Ministry Invasive Species Working Group for consideration. You will be informed of the decision.
The Province continues to aim to offer free workshops that focus on:
- Correctly gathering data in the field
