Representatives Needed for Urban Deer Committee

UBCM is calling for expressions of interest from local government representatives who wish to sit on the Province’s new Provincial Urban Deer Advisory Committee.  

The Advisory Committee is a multi-stakeholder committee tasked with providing support to local governments that are managing and addressing urban deer issues within BC.  It will provide advice and share information on the resourcing, processes, roles and responsibilities, communication and educational materials and processes that relate to urban deer management.

The creation of the Advisory Committee arises from Minister Steve Thomson’s commitment to address urban deer issues as well as from a 2015 joint UBCM-Provincial deer management workshop recommendation.

Draft terms of reference are currently being developed, and the inaugural meeting is anticipated to take place late summer. For those interested in sitting on the Committee, please send an expression of interest to Jared Wright, Director of Advocacy.   

Please note that UBCM’s call for expressions of interest will end June 15th
