Recovery Strategy for the American Chestnut (Castanea dentata) in Canada

The Minister of the Environment is the competent minister for the recovery of the American Chestnut and has prepared this strategy, as per section 37 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). In the spirit of cooperation of the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk, the Government of Ontario has given permission to the Government of Canada to adopt the Recovery Strategy for the American Chestnut (Castanea dentata) in Ontario under section 44 of SARA. Environment Canada has included an addition which completes the SARA requirements for this recovery strategy. The American Chestnut Ontario Government Response Statement has also been included as part of the adoption to clarify the priorities for implementation. A Government Response Statement is the Ontario Government’s policy response to the recovery strategy that summarizes the prioritized actions that the government intends to take.
