Welcome. The purpose of this web site was to host a discussion with citizens and stakeholders about improving public consultation in the BC environmental assessment process.

Public consultation is an important and necessary aspect of environmental assessments in British Columbia, based on the principle that those affected by proposed projects should have an opportunity to provide input to the assessment.

The BC Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) held the online discussion from April 14th until May 26th, 2015. The EAO will review the comments and post a summary report on the issues and suggestions. EAO will also integrate the comments that you submitted where possible into existing and new EAO processes.

Until July 31, 2015 you can still read the 3 online discussions and the many suggestions that were submitted:

Discussion 1 – What’s Working?

Discussion 2 – Potential Improvements

Discussion 3 – Communication
