Environmental Charter

The purpose of this Environmental Charter is to emphasize the importance of a healthy environment to Mission’s residents and businesses, and to identify actions that can be taken by the District, business owners, and residents to protect and sustain the community’s ecosystems and overall resiliency.

The Charter is based on a set of guiding principles which are used to channel a series of recommended actions that will be taken by the District of Mission to enhance environmental management.  The recommended actions contained in the Charter are categorized into four broad environmental management components:

Environmental Stewardship
Waste Management
Climate Change, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and Energy Efficiency
Natural Environment

In addition, the Charter provides general guidance for Council regarding potential initiatives that enrich environmental value.

The District has developed a Community Energy and Emissions Plan for Mission to help our community become more resilient, energy efficient, increase our use of renewable energy sources, and reduce our impact on climate change.

The CEEP attempts to answer the following questions:

Why take action?
Where are we now?
Where are we going?
Where do we want to go?
How will we get there?

South Coast Conservation Program – Nature Stewards Program

The South Coast has a high level of biodiversity thanks to a variety of ecosystems.  However, the region’s natural plants and animals also face the challenge of living in the most densely populated area of the Province. Currently, there are over 260 endangered species that can be found in the region.

The South Coast Landowner Stewardship Program encourages landowners to actively play a role in stewarding and improving wildlife habitat on their land. This can include monitoring, maintenance, enhancement, or protection for wildlife including species and ecosystems at risk.
