The Howe Sound Biosphere Region Initiative organization is now registered as a Society, launched a website www.howesoundbri.org and Facebook page.

The Fall 2017 meeting of the Howe Sound Community Forum is being hosted by the Sunshine Coast Regional District.

Call to Action: Support a National Park Campaign; Vote for Howe Sound - 2017 Provincial Election; Support for a Salish Sea World Heritage Site; Initiative for a Howe Sound UNESCO Biosphere Region Designation

Now we have a real opportunity to move this vision forward thanks to the David Suzuki Foundation who set the initiative for a National Park on Gambier Island as a strategic goal.

On April 27th, the Future of Howe Sound Society and the David Suzuki Foundation are co-hosting an All Candidates Meeting for the West Vancouver Sea to Sky riding. On May 9th voters will cast their ballots in the Provincial Election. The future of Howe Sound will then be influenced by the new government for the next four years.
