Permanently protecting more old growth forests in British Columbia will help fight climate change and ensure that these iconic and globally significant ecosystems can thrive for generations.
A re-elected Liberal government will help support British Columbia protect these iconic and ecologically important old growth forests by:
- Reaching a nature agreement with the province of British Columbia to protect more of the province’s old growth forests and expand protected areas.
- Establishing a $50 million B.C. Old Growth Nature Fund and working with partners to attract additional funding to further support the protection of important old growth forests.
- Ensuring First Nations, local communities, and workers are partners in shaping the path forward on nature protection.
