The Governor in Council (GiC) has decided that not listing Thompson River and Chilcotin River Steelhead Trout under the Species at Risk Act would result in the greatest overall benefits to current and future generations of Canadians and the conservation of these wildlife species. In making this decision the GiC considered: the emergency assessment and recommendation made by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada; science advice; the current and ongoing shared management of Steelhead Trout between the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia; the anticipated conservation outcomes of listing and not listing under SARA; actions that have been taken and which are planned for the conservation of Thompson and Chilcotin Steelhead; a cost-benefit analysis; and the results of consultations, including Indigenous cultural significance information.
