Because of COVID-19 concerns, in-person sessions planned for April in Mackenzie, Hudson's Hope and Prince George have been cancelled.

Six online discussions will take place instead, including online information sessions scheduled for:

  • April 8 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

  • April 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

  • April 29 from noon to 1:30 p.m.

More in-depth technical workshops will be held on April 14 on aquatic-based actions, April 15 on land-based actions, and April 16 on all drafted actions. The technical workshops run from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

"We know that concerns about COVID-19 are escalating, and while it’s definitely not business as usual, we’d like to keep working on updates to our Peace region action plans if possible,” program Peace region manager Chelsea Coady said.
