Peace Region Wildlife
The Provincial Fish and Wildlife Branch and regional staff establish legislation, policies and procedures for managing fishing and hunting activities, and for the allocation of fish and wildlife resources for recreational and commercial use.
Wildlife Management Programs endeavor to maintain and manage wildlife, habitat and sustainable uses and keep a balance between human use of wildlife and conservation by:
- administering the Wildlife Act of British Columbia
- preparing Wildlife Program regulations in consultation with regions and others, including hunting and trapping regulations (hunting and trapping information). Public consultation contributes to any changes to regulations, and comments are being sought on the proposed changes for the 2010-11 season.
- managing the Guide Industry to ensure compliance and optimum use of resources
- administering process for licences and permits and reviewing, advising and recommending fee structure and levels for licences and permits [The Wildlife Act Permit Regulation - an Introduction (brochure)]
- collecting and analyzing hunter and harvest data

- Animals will be inspected without the hunter present. You may choose to wait in the office lobby, at the picnic tables at the back of the office or return after the inspection has been completed. Inspections should take approximately 30 minutes per animal.
There will be an opportunity to discuss the inspection with the inspector once it has been completed.
