Professional Reliance Review

What is this engagement about?

The Province is conducting a review of the professional reliance model of the natural resource sector to ensure the highest professional, technical and ethical standards are being applied to resource development in British Columbia.
This review will make recommendations on whether:

  1. Professional associations that oversee qualified professionals employ best practices to protect the public interest and whether government oversight of professional associations is adequate.
  2. Any additional oversight or changes to governance are required to ensure best practices are followed for qualified professionals and their associations in their activities related to professional reliance.
  3. Conditions governing the involvement of qualified professionals in government’s resource management decisions and the appropriate level of government oversight to assure the public their interests are protected.

More information about qualified professionals and the professional reliance model in the natural resource sector can be found here.

How can my contribution make a difference?

Your feedback will help inform recommendations that will be part of the final report for this review which will be completed in spring 2018 and released to the public.
