The in-depth invasive species resources on this page include technical bulletins, best management practices, and videos. These resources are aimed at helping resource managers and the public in the fight against invasive species. Control techniques outlined in the technical bulletins and best management practices inform resource managers on how to handle invasive species, while the descriptions help inform the general public on identification.
In 2017, the Early Detection & Rapid Response Network worked with leading invasive plant control professionals across Ontario to create a series of technical bulletins to help supplement the Ontario Invasive Plant Council’s Best Management Practices series. These brief documents were created to help invasive plant management professionals use the most effective control practices in their effort to control invasive plants in Ontario.
Best Management Practices
These Best Management Practices (BMPs) are designed to provide guidance for managing invasive plants in Ontario. They were developed by the Ontario Invasive Plant Council (OIPC) and its partners, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (OMNRF), and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Foods, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA). These guidelines were created to complement the invasive plant control initiatives of organizations and individuals concerned with the protection of biodiversity, agricultural lands, crops, and natural lands.
