EDDMapS Alberta -- Invasive Plant Mapping in Alberta, Canada
University of Georgia. Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health.
EDDMapS Alberta, the Early Detection & Distribution Mapping System for Alberta, is an innovative web-based mapping tool which can be used to document the distribution of targeted invasive plants across Alberta, and help identify the leading edge of new infestations. Volunteers can learn how to collect data on invasive plants, and enter the data into EDDMapS Alberta through a web-based data entry form. The intent is to empower the public to become actively involved, in order to more effectively slow the spread of harmful invasive plants, and reduce their environmental and economic damage.

See Great Lakes from Environment Canada for more information.

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Update (Jul 2015)
Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
We have been actively monitoring for brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) since 2011. As of June 2015, we have confirmed BMSB has established (breeding) populations at 5 locations in Ontario, but based on trap captures of adults and homeowner finds, we suspect a much wider distribution. Most BMSB in Ontario have been found by homeowners, and in some locations, multiple reports indicate that local populations have been established. There have been almost 300 confirmed BMSB homeowner finds in Ontario to date!

Ontario Releases Plan to Combat Invasive Species (Jul 3, 2012)
Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.
Ontario has developed a plan to combat invasive species in order to protect the province's environment and its economy. The Ontario Invasive Species Strategic Plan (PDF | 2.89 MB) outlines Ontario's approach to the prevention, early detection, and rapid response to new invasive species and the effective management of existing invasive species like round goby, zebra mussels and the emerald ash borer. Several ministries will work together under the plan to ensure threats to the province's biodiversity and its economy are dealt with as effectively as possible.
