Abstract

This Procedures Manual provides guidelines for the nomination of sites in Canada to the List of Wetlands of International Importance (the "List"). This action is taken in accordance with the articles of the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance Especially as Waterfowl Habitat (the Ramsar Convention) to which Canada is a full party. These guidelines are needed to: (1) assure that nominations for listing of sites in Canada are consistent with Convention criteria and obligations; and, (2) allow mechanisms for appropriate review of proposed site nominations.
