Data representing the Howe Sound Cumulative Effects Project area in British Columbia: six key Grizzly Bear population and habitat indicators (population status, human-caused mortality, hunter day density, front-country in habitat, capable secure core area, and mid-seral dense conifer stands in habitat); five supplemental Grizzly Bear population and habitat factors (bear density, road density, quality food, capable habitat protected, and front/back-country encounter classification); and other supplemental environmental information.

The conceptual model used for this assessment is derived from the Interim Assessment Protocol for Grizzly Bear in British Columbia (Tier 1 Provincial Scale Grizzly Bear Assessment Protocol) Standards for British Columbia’s Cumulative Effects Framework Values Foundation, 2017 ( The data inputs used in the GIS analysis that generated this assessment dataset are from 2015.
