Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Hill's Thistle (Cirsium hillii) in Canada

Hill's Thistle (Cirsium hillii) is listed as Threatened under Schedule 1 of the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA). In Ontario, it is listed as Threatened on the Species at Risk in Ontario (SARO) List under the Endangered Species Act, 2007 (ESA). The global rank of Hill's Thistle is vulnerable, and is completely restricted to the Great Lakes Region. The Canadian range of Hill's Thistle may account for as much as 50% or more of the global population.

The first version of this recovery strategy was originally posted in 2011. The current version posted here has been amended, as per Section 45 of the Act, from the first version, to include some additional language regarding Traditional Ecological Knowledge.

Consultation period: 2010-12-09 to 2011-02-07
