Environmental Management Plan

BIEAP > Environmental Management Plan for Burrard Inlet

Burrard Inlet is one of the most recognizable features in Greater Vancouver. The Inlet is an 11,300-hectare, marine-tidal water body, contained by 190 kilometres of shoreline. The surrounding natural drainage basin is home to several municipalities and comprises an additional 98,000 hectares of land. As part of the larger Georgia Basin region, Burrard Inlet is a significant component of one of Canada's most productive marine and terrestrial ecosystems. At the same time, the area is home to a large urbanized population as well as Port Metro Vancouver, Canada's gateway to the Pacific Rim.

In 1999, the partners of the Burrard Inlet Environmental Action Program (BIEAP) initiated a process to develop a new environmental management plan to improve the environmental quality of the Burrard Inlet ecosystem.

The Consolidated Environmental Management Plan for Burrard Inlet was approved by the five BIEAP partners in 2002 It has since been endorsed by seven municipalities in the BIEAP area.

In addition to containing a compendium of all the environmental policies and regulations pertaining to Burrard Inlet, the Plan identifies a series of shared goals, objectives and actions that will ensure coordinated decision-making and improve the environmental quality of Burrard Inlet.

Also available is the report that outlines the process that was taken to develop the Plan. It is called Public Consultation and Planning Process: The Consolidated Environmental Management Plan for Burrard Inlet, July 2002.
