In 2001, the Islands Trust Council initiated the Islands Trust Crown Land Study to prepare Vacant Crown Land Profiles for islands throughout the Trust Area. Over the subsequent decade, as time allowed, staff completed profiles for Denman, Galiano, Hornby, Salt Spring and Valdes Islands.
The Purpose of the Vacant Crown Land Profiles
The purpose of the Vacant Crown Land Profiles is to represent the most complete collation of current knowledge regarding vacant Crown land parcels in the Islands Trust Area. Islands Trust will use the Profiles as a starting point for the compilation of more detailed information as it becomes available through further studies.
The information included in the profiles, the maps or the referenced material may not be complete. In particular, the information and mapping on ecosystems may be preliminary and uncertain. Islands Trust will use the information to flag features requiring further investigation. In many cases, more detailed inventories and mapping will be required to provide an accurate understanding of the ecological values of a parcel.
