to manage the K’ómoks Estuary
Project Watershed has taken an active part in helping create a plan for integrated management of the estuary across all governing bodies to ensure estuary health and resilience.
The Comox Valley Regional District took the lead in revising the Courtenay River Management Plan (CREMP) in 2009. The Estuary Working Group along with other stakeholders such as Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Ministry of Transportation, K’omoks First Nation etc… worked together to revise the document. A revised document was produced in 2011. Another revision is underway and is awaiting final edits. In this revision a variety of changes will be made. The most obvious being the change from calling the Courtenay River Estuary to the K’ómoks Estuary in honor of the K’omoks First Nation – so the CREMP has become the KEMP. Once the final draft is produced we will be working towards its adoption and implementation by local, provincial and federal governments.
