Critical Habitat Orders

Critical Habitat of the Fernald's Braya (Braya fernaldii) Order: SOR/2021-12

Fernald's Braya (Braya fernaldii) is a small (10 cm tall) herbaceous perennial plant endemic to the limestone barrens ecosystem on the Island of Newfoundland, Canada. The main threats to the Fernald's Braya are loss and degradation of habitat due to human activities, as well as non-native species (e.g. insect pests and pathogens). The Critical Habitat of the Fernald's Braya (Braya fernaldii) Order (the Order) will support the survival and recovery of the Fernald's Braya through the legal protection of its critical habitat on federal land. The Order will apply the prohibition against the destruction of critical habitat set out in subsection 58(1) of SARA to the critical habitat of the Fernald's Braya on federal land.
