Island Lake Conservation Area Management Plan

CVC is excited to announce the initiation of the Island Lake Conservation Area Management Plan.

The current management plan for Island Lake Conservation Area (ILCA) was completed in 1997 and outlines objectives and directions for the property for a 20-year period. This plan, together with an addendum in 2005, set the stage for the development of several key recreational facilities and supporting infrastructure such as the boat launch, docks, picnic pavilions, washrooms, parking lots, viewing platforms, fishing piers and trail system.

Working within the framework of CVC’s Conservation Areas Master Strategy, and in meaningful collaboration with CVC technical experts, external partners, Indigenous communities, stakeholders and the public, this project will see the creation of a new management plan for ILCA that establishes a new vision and objectives that respond to current pressures, and a set of directions that will guide natural resource management, capital investments, recreation and visitor experiences over the next 25 years.
