Access to practical tools & resources to help Canadians better understand and conserve wetlands.


This workbook helps decision-makers to consider wetland functions centrally in the project decision process by:

  • identifying the benefits provided by a wetland
  • establishing its value to society
  • identifying its sensitivity to proposed changes
  • evaluating alternative uses for the site
The guide outlines a three-stage evaluation designed to elicit sufficient information to reach an informed decision.
