The framework is designed to be modular, and work is under way on five values:
- hydro-riparian ecosystems (riparian habitat, water quantity)
- old forest
- high-priority wildlife habitat
- resource features
- cultural heritage resources.
Three additional values are planned:
- ground water
- water quality
- air quality.
If additional values are identified through the First Nations engagement process, they will be considered for inclusion within the framework.
