More than 450 native bird species make use of Canada’s natural and human-modified landscapes for part of their annual lifecycle. Most of these bird species, their nests and eggs are protected under the Migratory Birds Convention Act (MBCA,1994). Federal legislation requires road infrastructure maintenance, creation and renewal to adhere to the MBCA to protect birds, nests and eggs.

This webinar provides an overview of three new TAC publications that address the legislation, migratory bird biology, and operational guidance to reduce the risk of contravening the MBCA during vegetation removal, and during culvert and bridge work:

  • Beneficial Practices for Compliance with the Migratory Birds Convention Act and Regulations (2019)   
  • Operational Guidance for Migratory Birds and Vegetation Management for Existing Transportation Facilities and Infrastructure (2019)
  • Operational Guidance for Migratory Bird Nests under Bridges and in Culverts (2019)
