Subject: Management of Incidental Take of migratory birds


Since late 2007 you have been invited to provide input into the development of

a new approach to the management of incidental take of migratory birds.

Many detailed and thorough comments and materials were provided. They

inform our continuing path forward and I am very grateful for that.

As a result of this input and considering other regulatory change priorities,

Environment Canada will not be requesting regulatory amendments, but will

focus on the development of practices that provide tangible support to

compliance with the existing prohibitions. In addition we will continue to work

with interested parties to ensure a set of best practices that will help sustain

populations of migratory birds in Canada and provide a solid basis for those

that will want to use them. In that regards, the soon to be completed bird

conservation region (BCR) plans will provide a useful base on which to build.

We invite your participation to bringing existing practices to our attention and

we look forward to working with you in the future.

We will update our website as soon as possible to reflect this change.

Best Regards,

Cynthia Wright

Acting Assistant Deputy Minister

Environmental Stewardship Branch
