Welcome


Welcome to the Cheakamus Ecosystem Restoration Technical Committee (CERTC) website, which provides information on Cheakamus ecosystem restoration activities.

CERTC was formed in August 2005 in response to a train derailment and subsequent spill of sodium hydroxide into the Cheakamus River. CERTC's mandate is to understand ecosystem-level impacts and develop restoration and monitoring strategies for affected species to accelerate the return of the Cheakamus ecosystem to a pre-spill state as quickly as reasonably possible.

CERTC recommends programs for implementation to the Cheakamus Ecosystem Restoration Steering Committee based on input from experienced professionals, external specialists, interested parties and the public.

Both committees include representatives of:

  • CN
  • District of Squamish
  • Fisheries and Oceans Canada
  • BC Ministry of Environment
  • Squamish Nation

Thank you for your interest in Cheakamus ecosystem restoration.
