About the Project


The Shannon Basin is a popular year-round recreation destination for locals and tourists alike. The popularity of the area continues to grow as are interests in expanding commercial recreation offerings in the area.

As more and more people visit this area, the Province wishes to develop a management strategy that enables sustainable recreation use while protecting the area’s important environmental and cultural values.

This area has been home to First Nations peoples for thousands of years and is within the traditional territories of the Squamish Nation (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, and the Musqueam Indian Band (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm). This area, and the resources within it, continue to be culturally, spiritually and economically important to First Nations communities today.

Work is beginning on a recreation management strategy for the greater Shannon Basin – an area encompassing the Stawamus Chief & Shannon Falls Provincial Parks and the Shannon Creek Watershed. This project is a partnership between the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (Sea to Sky district) and Squamish Nation, in collaboration with BC Parks. The Fraser Basin Council is assisting the project partners as an impartial facilitator and to conduct outreach and engagement with stakeholders.

You are invited to participate in our initial public survey, which will inform the recreation management strategy for the Shannon Basin. Your input is important. Please take a few moments to share your ideas. Please do not include any personal information.

Project Process & Tentative Timeline


The survey will close on October 20, 2019.


Survey results, along with other engagement opportunities, will be shared on this page.

If you have any questions about this project, please get in touch with Susie Dain-Owens, Land and Resource Specialist, Sea to Sky Natural Resource District, BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (E: ).
