OIPC delivers a workshop
The Ontario Invasive Plant Council (OIPC) is a multi-sector, non-profit group committed to the collaboration of organizations and citizens in order to more effectively respond to the threat of invasive plants in Ontario.
OIPC's Response to the Release of the Ontario Invasive Species Strategic Plan
The OIPC is pleased with the actions taken by the Ontario Government to develop the Ontario Invasive Species Strategic Plan. The OIPC is very concerned with the impact that invasive plant species have on our economy and our natural biodiversity. The Ontario Invasive Plant Council fully supports this plan’s commitment to improve coordination within government and seek stronger collaboration with non-government partners like the OIPC. Read the full response.
