CRISP - Capital Region Invasive Species Partnership


Efficient and effective invasive species management: increasing regional collaboration, information sharing, planning and programs.


Invasive species pose threats to our economy, environment and humans, including health.

Capital Region Invasive Species Partnership

Invasive species threaten our health, environment, safety and economy.

CRISP (the Capital Region Invasive Species Partnership) is a collaborative partnership of local governments within the Capital Region mainland.  We work on priority invasive species issues and public outreach.

CRISP provides:

  • Regional public outreach on priority invasive species
  • Regional early detection rapid response (EDRR) program
  • Local government collaboration and planning
  • Partnerships for effective management
  • and more!

EDRR: Early Detection Rapid Response

The most effective ways to manage invasive species include prevention and early detection rapid response for new priority invaders.

Local governments of CRISP are working together and with partners to address high risk invasive species including Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and European Fire Ants.  
We provide the public with assistance and information on these and other priority species.

Effective invasive species management depends on collaboration and partnerships. CRISP collaborates with other regional and provincial partners including the Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC), regional invasive organizations, major land managers in the Capital Region and other key partners, such as provincial agencies.
