Title: Community-based Service Intergration

Year: 2006

Author(s): Janet Bate

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
On the Central West Coast of Vancouver Island, community leaders are engaged in collaborative partnerships with the intent of developing an integrated family service delivery model. Concurrently, the Provincial Government is promoting community-based collaborative partnerships and integration of services, while it also cuts funding to needed services in rural areas. First Nation governments are also in transition to establish authority and control over Aboriginal service planning and delivery. This community-based action research brings service providers, managers and funders together to determine the success factors in a rural service integration process through an Appreciative Inquiry process. This project explores what is necessary for the effective integration of family services in the Central West Coast Region of Vancouver Island. Study results show that shared visioning and learning opportunities through a sustainable community Coalition process are keys to a successful rural integrated service delivery process.

Title: Streamkeepers monitor health

Year: 2005

Author(s): Jennifer Dart, The Westerly News

Type: Newspaper Article

Description:
What is a streamkeeper and what does one do? These were just a couple of the questions I had on a cold, rainy morning I joined Tofino Streamkeepers for a walk along MacKenzie Creek. These questions quickly led to others, such as "why do they do it in this weather, and at this hour on a Saturday morning?" I'd get answers to most of these questions over the next two hours. Gathered along Sharp Road that morning were five volunteer Tofino Streamkeepers and two biologists. Dave Clough and Warren Warttig were there to help the Tofino group complete an assessment of the MacKenzie Creek habitat area...

Title: Native Plants and First Nations: How can we create research that is equitable, sustainable, and beneficial to all?

Year: 2005

Author(s): Amanda Howe, Royal Roads University

Type: Proceedings

Description:
File Report: 200137-01 This workshop was funded by the Natural Health Products Directorate of Health Canada as part of the Natural Health Products Research Program (NHPRP). The aim of the NHPRP is to germinate interest in natural health product research by supporting research and related activities that address the following objectives: - the need to build research capacity - the commitment to conduct research of the highest quality - the importance of developing community infrastructure and partnerships; and/or - the need to enhance knowledge transfer and information retrieval The NHPRP has been developed to reflect the diverse nature of the Natural Health Product research community. During their nationwide consultations the NHPRP identified indigenous medicinal plants and Aboriginal contributions and approaches to alternative health care as research priorities.

Title: Assessing Community Capacity for Ecosystem Management: Clayoquot Sound and Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserves.

Year: 2004

Author(s): Sharmalene Ruwanthi Mendis

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
Biosphere reserves are regions that are internationally recognized for their ecological significance and work towards ecosystem management. The concept of community capacity, as developed in the resource management and health promotion literatures, was applied to two such regions that were designated in 2000: Clayoquot Sound and Redberry Lake. The purpose of this comparative research was to better understand what constitutes the collective ability, or community capacity, these places have for fulfilling their functions as biosphere reserves. M.A. Thesis, University of Saskatchewan.

Title: Cadmium in oysters and scallops: the BC experience

Year: 2004

Author(s): George M. Kruzynski

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Health effects of non-occupational lifetime exposure to cadmium (Cd) are of growing concern worldwide. This overview provides some context for the current situation in coastal British Columbia, Canada, which arose in 1999 from the discovery of problematic residues of Cd in farmed Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas). Efforts are underway to define Cd sources and the geographical and seasonal variation of these Cd residues. The recent application by the European Community of a 1 ug Cd/g (wet weight) import limit to bivalve molluscs and the current deliberation by CODEX to adopt the same value, pose significant threats to the shellfish export trade in the Pacific Northwest (British Columbia, Washington and Alaska), where natural oceanographic conditions and coastal geology contribute to levels of Cd that usually exceed the 1 ppm limit. Human health aspects of chronic Cd exposure compromise an active field of study (this Symposium) and the validity of existing Provisional Tolerable Weekly Intake is being questioned. Bioavailability of Cd from the oyster and scallop matrix is unknown and requires study. Ramifications of this uncertainty may include damage to public perception of the safety of the cultured shellfish product, loss of export market and general undermining of an industry being encouraged by both the Provide of British Columbia and Federal aquaculture initiatives. There is therefore a pressing need to redefine what the "safe" limit of lifetime Cd intake is from all sources, and determine bioavailability, specifically from bivalve molluscs. Such information would facilitate the definition of scientifically defensible Cd Limits by CODEX.

Title: Sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) infection rates on juvenile pink (oncorhynchus gorbuscha) and chum (Oncorhynchus keta) salmon in the nearshore marine environment of British Columbia, Canada.

Year: 2004

Author(s): Alexandra Morton; Richard Routledge; Corey Peet; Aleria Ladwig

Type: Journal Article

Description:
This study compared sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) infestation rates on juvenile pink (oncorhynchus gorbuscha) and chum (Oncorhynchus keta) salmon in five nearshore areas of the British Columbia coast selected on the basis of proximity to salmon farms. A 10-week study in the Broughton Archipelago found sea lice were 8.8 times more abundant on wild fish near farms holding adult samon and 5.0 times more abundant on wild fish near farms holding smolts than in areas distant from salmon farms. We found that 90% of juvenile pink and chum salmon sampled near salmon farms in the Broughton Archipelago were infected with more than 1.6 lice-(g host mass), a proposed lethal limit when the lice reach mobeile stages. Sea lice abundance was near zero in all areas without salmon farms. Salinity and temperature differences could not account for the higher infestation rates near the fish farms. The most immature life stages dominated the lice population throughout the study, suggesting the source of lice was a stationary, local salmonid population. No such wild population could be identified. The evidence from this control-impact study points to a relationship between salmon farms and sea lice on adjacent, wild, juvenile, salmon.

Title: Forest Health and Protection

Year: 2000

Author(s): Robert Edmonds; James Agee; Robert Gara

Type: Book

Description:
From the introduction:" Diseases, insects, and abiotic agents such as fire, wind, drought are the major natural disturbance agents that change forest ecosystems; anthropogenic air pollution also strongly influences the forests. Typically these factors have been treated separately in textbooks, but as we manage forests more as ecosystems, it is becoming apparent that we should not only examine their separate effects, but also their interactions."

Title: Rebuilding salmon stocks through habitat restoration in the Kennedy Watershed of Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia

Year: 1998

Author(s): Mark R. S. Johannes, Northwest Ecosystem Institute; Kim D. Hyatt, Fisheries and Oceans Canada

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
The Kennedy Watershed of Clayoquot Sound has a long history of resource extraction and a much shorter history of examining the state of resources and investment in restoration of degraded areas. To date, restoration work in the Kennedy Watershed had been influenced by knowledge of specific impacts caused by past logging practices. Two community based restoration projects in the Kennedy Watershed are provided as examples of studies which are being used a valuable experimental tools to critically examine associations between local forest harvest impacts and salmon production limits.
