What values are included in the area-based analysis work?

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.
