Critical Habitat Orders

Critical Habitat of the Westslope Cutthroat Trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii lewisi) Alberta Population Order

In 2005, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) classified the Westslope Cutthroat Trout, Alberta population, as threatened. The assessment was based upon the best available information on the biological status of the species, including scientific knowledge. The assessment was confirmed by COSEWIC in 2006. A “threatened species” is defined under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) as a wildlife species that is likely to become an endangered species if nothing is done to reverse the factors leading to its extirpation or extinction.
