Controlled Alien Species

The Wildlife Act’s Controlled Alien Species Regulation is a regulation that controls the possession, breeding, shipping and releasing of alien animals (i.e. that are not native to B.C.) that pose a risk to the health or safety of people. Under Sections 6.4 and 6.5 of the Wildlife Act, the Minister of the Environment has authority to designate species as controlled alien species and to regulate these species.
