Recovery Strategy for the Williamson’s Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus thyroideus) in Canada

The Minister of the Environment is the competent minister for the recovery of the Williamson’s Sapsucker and has prepared this strategy, as per section 37 of SARA. It has been prepared in cooperation with the Government of British Columbia, environmental non-governmental organizations, industry stakeholders and the St. Mary’s Band of the Ktunaxa Nation.

The Recovery Strategy for the Williamson’s Sapsucker was modified in June 2016 to replace Figure 3 (Critical habitat for the western area of occupancy).

Consultation period: 2013-12-18 to 2014-02-16
