This is a generalized feature layer. For the full shapefile, visit the Land Information Ontario website link in the Table (see tab above), or e-mail fourriversrequests@matawa.on.ca.The Caribou Range Boundary delineation provides a spatial reference towards a analytical framework within which caribou demographic performance and persistence is linked to the biophysical attributes of the land supporting caribou.Legislated or Legal Authority for Collection: The Endangered Species Act, 2007 legislates that the Province of Ontario will ensure that a strategy is prepared for the recovery of each species that is listed on the Species at Risk in Ontario List as an endangered or threatened species 2007, c. 6, s. 11 (1). In accordance of this criteria, the Woodland Caribou Recovery Strategy (2008) was prepared and provides the Province of Ontario with advice and recommendations on the goals, objectives and broad approaches needed for the recovery of Woodland Caribou. In section 4.0 (Recommended Approach to Identification and Protection of Habitat), the strategy recommends the identification and delineation of ranges and local populations; in support of the goal of the strategy - Section 1.0 ('Maintain self-sustaining, genetically-connected local populations of forest-dwelling woodland caribou where they currently exist; ensure security for and (reproductive) connections among currently isolated mainland local populations; and re-establish caribou in strategically selected landscape units to achieve self-sustaining local populations and ensure connectivity.')Furthermore, the Ontario Woodland Caribou Conservation Plan (2009) was created which provides direction of caribou management. Section 2.0 (Adopt a Range Management Approach) of the CCP states that, 'Ontario will adopt a range management approach to Woodland Caribou recovery...Range management will be the approach that sets the spatial and ecological context for planning and management decisions within an adaptive management framework'. Section 2.2 further states that, 'Ontario will identify local caribou population ranges, as units of analysis, within the provincial distribution of caribou'.
