Invasive Alien Species

In May 2008, the Town of Annapolis Royal approached the Clean Annapolis River Project (CARP) to propose ways in which the Town might incorporate invasive alien species (IAS) into its long-term planning. Specifically, the Town requested some input on IAS policy to consider for its “Green Plan”.

Canadian municipal plans incorporating IAS policy are either rare or difficult to find. Ways in which the Town might approach IAS in a proactive, yet conservative manner in its “Green Plan” include the following four measures: Identification, Better Management Practices (BMP), Public Outreach and Education and Long Term Management.

In April 2021, the Environment Advisory Committee updated the policy to reflect new procedures and resources.
