The purpose of this engagement is to solicit feedback from a diverse group of stakeholders, including qualified professionals (QPs), those who use QPs in both government and the private sector, and the general public, as to how the current professional reliance model is performing, and to provide suggestions as to possible enhancements or changes required. As well, all B.C. First Nations bands and councils were invited to share their experiences, including how their Nation values the use of qualified professionals to inform natural resource decisions related to resource use.

There were several ways to participate in the engagement process which was open from December 1, 2017 to January 19, 2018.

  1. Citizens (individuals) and users of Qualified Professionals (QPs) could complete an online survey.
  2. Stakeholders were invited to submit a formal submission.
  3. QPs were invited to complete a survey through their member associations.

Respondents who indicated they would like their submission made public, are posted below.
