2022 Southern Resident Killer Whale Management Measures

For the month of February, 2022, the Government of Canada invited Indigenous people, stakeholders and the general public to comment on the Proposed 2022 Southern Resident Killer Whale (SRKW) Management Measures.

The proposed measures were available online and each measure had multiple options that could be chosen. In the questionnaire, respondents were asked how they might benefit from certain measures, chosen options and further additional space was provided to elaborate on answers.

The Department of Fisheries & Oceans (DFO) then used the month of March to collect all the submissions and comments from other forums such as the SRKW Technical Working Groups and Indigenous & Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Groups to prepare a final submission for the federal Ministers’ consideration. At the end of April, the Ministers of Transport, Fisheries & Oceans, and Environment & Climate Change (also responsible for Parks Canada), released the finalized 2022 SRKW Management Measures

We thought it might be interesting to compare our submission to the options chosen by the Ministers. You can read our comparison here (PDF).
