Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Short-rayed Alkali Aster (Symphyotrichum frondosum) in Canada

Short-rayed Alkali Aster is an annual late summer flowering species reported in British Columbia from lakeshores and pond margins in the Okanagan Valley. It was listed as Endangered under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) in 2007. Environment Canada (EC) is the lead federal department under SARA, but the province of British Columbia is the responsible jurisdiction for the management of this species and is the lead for recovery planning under the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk. A provincial recovery strategy for the species was developed on behalf of province of British Columbia in 2009. EC is adopting the provincial recovery strategy under section 44 of SARA and has included a federal addition to complete the SARA requirements. The federal addition and the provincial recovery strategy together constitute the federal recovery strategy for the Short-rayed Alkali Aster. It has been prepared in cooperation with the province of British Columbia and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

Consultation period: 2013-03-12 to 2013-05-11
