B.C. developing new outdoor recreation strategy
British Columbia's outdoor recreation scene thrives, engaging 70% of adults and pumping $15 billion into the economy annually. However, two decades of neglect have strained the sector amid climate shifts and surging demand. The Outdoor Recreation Council of BC's call for action gains momentum as the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy spearheads a two-year project to forge a united vision for outdoor activities, encompassing public lands, conservation, and Indigenous collaboration.
