Welcome to B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development Angling, Hunting and Trapping Engagement Website

The public is invited to comment on proposed angling, hunting and trapping regulations and policies through this engagement website.

The Province recognizes that a wider range of perspectives can be reached through web-based public engagement. We will continue to use a face-to-face consultation process in addition to collecting online feedback.

The ministry posts regional and provincial regulation and policy proposals on this website for public comment. User comments are visible only to designated ministry staff and to the user that posted the comment. A summary of website responses will be qualitatively analysed, summarized, and forwarded to ministry decision makers for consideration. The ministry will post final regulatory and policy decisions on the website. 

The following regulation proposals describe the current and proposed regulations, and include rationales for the regulatory change, while ensuring that the Ministry’s primary goal of conservation is maintained.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and working together to ensure that British Columbia provides world-class sustainable hunting, trapping, and fishing opportunities.

Users may view proposals without logging in, but users will now be required to log in with a BCeID to post comments.  To view the proposals click on "Angling" at the top of this page.
