Creating Safe Cities for Salmon:

Exploring How Government Policy Aligns

with the Salmon-Safe Urban Standards


A joint research study between the Pacific Water Research Centre (PWRC) and the Fraser Basin Council (FBC) points to the need for engaging municipal governments and the general public in better understanding the use of nature-based solutions for preventing water pollution and protecting salmon.  Study participants noted that nature-based solutions play a key role in a more sustainable and resilient future.

The research findings highlight important opportunities for local governments and developers to advance salmon-friendly urban development practices. Interested in raising the bar?
