Our Work in the Regions

Many sustainability issues in BC today are first experienced, and best understood, close to home.

FBC Regions

To support local efforts for sustainability, the Fraser Basin Council has a regional committee and office in each of five regions of the Fraser Basin, as well as an office on Vancouver Island. We are honoured to be part of many initiatives that involve residents, regional and municipal governments, First Nations, businesses and community groups.

Here is a look at local projects, by region:

Building the Big Picture

Sometimes a broad-brush initiative really comes to life when rolled out in a community or region. Other times, it’s by working on issues of local concern that wider sustainability issues and trends emerge. That can mean opportunities for collaboration, for the benefit of all.

One example is invasive plants. FBC began exploring invasive plants regionally, in the Cariboo-Chilcotin. Yet this was a problem without boundaries! We were happy to support multiple interests in creating a province-wide strategy, and helping to launch the Invasive Plant Council of BC (now the Invasive Species Council of BC). Read about it.

Our Vision

Social well-being supported by a vibrant economy and sustained by a healthy environment.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
