Ontario Re-Introducing Invasive Species Legislation

Protecting Ontario Against Invasive Species

NEWS November 5, 2014

Ontario is taking action to protect communities from invasive species through prevention, early detection, rapid response and eradication of invasive species in the province.

Today, Ontario will re-introduce the proposed Invasive Species Act, 2014 which, if passed, will protect the provinceˇ¦s natural environment from invasive species and the significant social, environmental and economic costs they pose for Ontarians.

The act, if passed, would:

„X Give Ontario the tools to ban activities such as possessing and transporting certain invasive species.
„X Allow the government to intervene earlier and enable rapid response actions, including working with partners to stop an invasive species from spreading ˇX for example by preventing the movement of contaminated firewood.
„X Help promote compliance through inspection and enforcement measures.

Preventing the spread of invasive species supports the government's economic plan for Ontario. The four part plan is building Ontario up by investing in peopleˇ¦s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.

QUOTE

ˇ§Invasive species pose a significant risk to our natural environment and our economy. This legislation would make Ontario a national leader in invasive species prevention and management. Working with our key partners, our proposed Invasive Species Act will serve as a critical tool in our collective fight against the growing threat of invasive species in Ontario.ˇ¨
ˇX Bill Mauro, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry

QUICK FACTS

„X If passed, the Invasive Species Act would position Ontario as the first and only jurisdiction in Canada to enact standalone invasive species legislation.
„X Globally, invasive species costs to the environment, agriculture and communities, including control costs, are estimated to be $1.4 trillion ˇX the equivalent of five per cent of the global economy and seven times the cost of natural disasters.
„X Do your part by reporting invasive species sightings. Call the Invading Species Hotline at
1-800-563-7711 or email info@invadingspecies.com.
„X Download the free EDDMapS app to identify and report invasive species from your smartphone.
