Province enters land deal with private owner for area of Juan de Fuca Marine Trail
The Province has entered into a land deal it hopes will ensure long-term access to the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail west of Victoria
The BC Government is in the process of purchasing 83 hectares of private property from Marine Trail Holdings, which adds to the purchase of 99 hectares from the company in 2015.
The land deal will continue the process of adding the trail corridor and access roads to Juan de Fuca Provincial Park, which will preserve the integrity of the 47-kilometre wilderness trail.
The parcels outside the trail corridor will be offered to the Pacheedaht First Nation.
