MaPP

2015 marked an important milestone for shaping the future of Canada’s North Pacific Coast. A co-led partnership between the government of British Columbia and 18 First Nations – called MaPP – developed marine plans that will guide the marine management in a vast ocean area spanning from the Alaska border to Campbell River on Vancouver Island – the Great Bear Sea.
