Province Responds to UBCM Urban Deer Recommendations

During the 2015 UBCM Convention, the Province provided a response to UBCM’s recommendations on the management of urban deer. The recommendations arose from a joint Province-UBCM workshop held in January 2015 in which provincial staff and local government representatives met to discuss the challenges and issues linked to urban deer management.

The recommendations and responses cover a range of issues including resources, management options, roles and responsibilities, as well as communication and education. The responses were accompanied by a provincial announcement to establish a Provincial Urban Deer Advisory Committee as well as a commitment of $100,000 annually for future urban deer management and research projects.
