Between now and April 17, 2022, you are invited to learn more and share your views with the Islands Trust for their Islands 2050 Policy Statement Amendment Project.

The Islands 2050 Policy Statement Amendment Project is designed to help Trust Council plan for the challenges and opportunities that the Islands Trust Area will face over the next 30 years.

This work involves updating the Islands Trust Policy Statement, which contains the policies that Trust Council uses to carry out its special provincial mandate to preserve and protect the unique amenities and environment of the Trust Area. The Policy Statement shapes land and marine use planning across the Trust Area, but the current version has not been substantively updated since 1994, and a lot has changed since then.

The Policy Statement is now being updated to be current, to adapt to future challenges, and to take advantage of new and developing opportunities. In particular, it seeks to update the document to better address Trust Council’s priority themes of reconciliation, climate change, and affordable housing.
