Under the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk (1996), the federal, provincial, and territorial governments agreed to work together on legislation, programs, and policies to protect wildlife species at risk throughout Canada.

In the spirit of cooperation of the Accord, the Government of Ontario has given permission to the Government of Canada to adopt the Recovery Strategy for the Blue Racer (Colouber constrictor foxii) in Ontario (Part 2) under Section 44 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Environment and Climate Change Canada has included a federal addition (Part 1) which completes the SARA requirements for this recovery strategy.

The federal recovery strategy for the Blue Racer in Canada consists of two parts:

Part 1 – Federal Addition to the Recovery Strategy for the Blue Racer (Coluber constrictor foxii) in Ontario, prepared by Environment and Climate Change Canada.

Part 2 – Recovery Strategy for the Blue Racer (Coluber constrictor foxii) in Ontario, prepared by R.J. Willson and G.M. Cunnington for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
