About the Event
The Canadian Council on Invasive Species (CCIS) hosted our first successful National Invasive Species Awareness Week (NISAW), in May 2020, which featured a series of webinars and social media resources promoting Canadians to stop the spread of invasive species. Since then, NISAW has developed into two weeks each year promoting awareness and action on invasive species in Winter and Spring. Winter NISAW focuses on raising awareness on invasive species through a week-long webinar series in February/March. In May, Spring NISAW is a social media-based event focusing on promoting action on invasive species issues to protect landscapes, waterways and communities in Canada. Both Winter and Spring NISAW events work collaboratively, by sharing important information with partners to assist them with their invasive species work, as well as to encourage people in Canada to take action to prevent the spread of invasive species in Canada.NISAW webinar topics and recordings.
