B.C. Mining Jobs Task Force

Get Involved


What is this engagement about?

Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources Minister Michelle Mungall has established a B.C. Mining Jobs Task Force that will review exploration and mining in the province and find ways to strengthen this important industry.
Over the coming months the B.C. Mining Jobs Task Force will work with First Nations, the mining industry and communities to develop recommendations on possible actions government could take to bring more certainty to the mining sector and create good jobs for people today, tomorrow and beyond.
In an era when we will need minerals for an electrified economy, and for transportation, we want B.C. to be the most attractive jurisdiction in Canada for exploration investment.
Please read the terms of reference prior to submitting your feedback to citizenengagement@gov.bc.ca.
Feedback will be accepted until October 1, 2018.

How can my contribution make a difference?

The task force will submit its final report, including any potential recommendations for legislative and/or regulatory amendments to Minister Mungall by November 21, 2018.
Ideas and feedback received at stakeholder meetings as well as written submissions (via email) will be provided to the Mining Jobs Task Force for their consideration in determining recommendations to the Minister.
The Task Force will use the input it receives during the engagement process to develop recommendations for the provincial government’s consideration. The recommendations may include changes to the current legislative, regulatory, and administrative framework
