The MaPP initiative is a partnership between the Province of British Columbia and 17 member First Nations (collectively the MaPP Partners) that developed and are implementing four marine use plans and a regional action framework for B.C.'s North Pacific Coast. The MaPP plans provide recommendations for key areas of marine management, including uses, activities and protection using the best available science and local and Indigenous knowledge. The plans inform decisions regarding the sustainable economic development and stewardship of British Columbia's coastal marine environment. Marine stakeholders representing multiple sectors provided input and advice to the planning process; consultation is ongoing during implementation.
