The implications of the Species at Risk Act (SARA) has been identified as a priority by AAMDC members through the endorsement of a number of resolutions. As such, the AAMDC is reminding members that the Government of Canada is looking for input on seven draft policies, which support consistent implementation of SARA.  

The draft policies in which the federal government is seeking input on include:

The federal government is welcoming any comments on these policies, and specifically is requesting responses to the following two question:

  • Are the policies clear and understandable?
  • Are there any concerns or recommendations regarding these policies? 

The Government of Canada has extended the comment period until March 31, 2017.

Feedback can be provided to the Species at Risk Public Registry via email at
