ISANS Legislative Review and Gap Analysis Phase I Report ISANS Legislative Review and Gap Analysis Phase I Report

The Invasive Alien Species Legislative Review and Gap Analysis Phase I: Terrestrial Plants and Insects provides an overview of federal and provincial (Nova Scotia) statutes and regulations which contain direct or indirect authorities to prevent the introduction of, control and eradication of invasive alien species (terrestrial plants and insects) in Nova Scotia. The Report is supported by two appendices that specifically identify the legislative provisions referenced in the Report. A third appendix to the Report identifies the statutes and regulations that may be used to manage invasive alien species in Nova Scotia and sets out the constitutional basis for the legislation, the area regulated, the Minister responsible and a brief summary of its purpose. NOTE: Appendices are available for download under the 'Resources' page of the website.

STEPPING UP: Planning for the Challenges of Invasive Alien Species in Nova Scotia (2008) STEPPING UP: Planning for the Challenges of Invasive Alien Species in Nova Scotia (2008)

On December 3-4, 2008, the Invasive Species Alliance of Nova Scotia (ISANS) hosted a workshop at the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre, Acadia University, Wolfville, Nova Scotia. The workshop was called "STEPPING UP: Planning for the Challenges of Invasive Alien Species in Nova Scotia", and its primary purpose was to inform, engage, and coordinate stakeholders in addressing the issues of invasive alien species (IAS) in Nova Scotia. It was the first all-species IAS workshop to bring people together from across the province, and was attended by approximately 50 participants. Most participants were from Nova Scotia, but several other provinces were also represented (New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia).
