Parks Canada, together with the Bowen Island Municipality and the Government of British Columbia, explored the possibility of establishing national park reserve lands on Bowen Island. National park reserve lands protect natural areas and cultural features and offer opportunities for experiencing and appreciating Canada's natural heritage.
We appreciate the extensive efforts Bowen Island residents made to participate in the feasibility assessment process. There is insufficient support for the proposal to move forward.
It has been an honour to work with such a passionate and engaged group of citizens.
