The Recovery Strategy for the Woodland Caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou), Boreal population, in Canada was posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry in October 2012 (Environment Canada, 2012a). Under Section 45 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA), the competent Minister may amend a recovery strategy at any time. This Amended Recovery Strategy for the Woodland Caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou), Boreal Population, in Canada (hereafter, “amended recovery strategy”) is for the purposes of:  Identifying critical habitat in northern Saskatchewan’s Boreal Shield range (SK1).  Updating population and habitat condition information, based on information previously published in the 5-Year Progress Report (Environment and Climate Change Canada, 2017).  Other minor edits to update factual information and/or to improve internal consistency within the document. At the time of final posting, this amended recovery strategy replaces the 2012 Recovery Strategy for the Woodland Caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou), Boreal population, in Canada (Environment Canada, 2012a).
