Natural Resource Stewardship
The Province is legally obligated to consult and accommodate First Nations, where required, on land and resource decisions that could impact their Aboriginal Interests.
British Columbia is committed to sustainable resource management. As resource demands grow, we must be able to measure the effect of all natural resource activities, large and small, on values that are important to the people of British Columbia.
Land based investment supports and guides the investments in activities that manage, conserve, or protect British Columbia's natural resources.
Natural resources in B.C. are managed by laws that:
- Control activities to ensure sustainability
- Protect the environment and human health and safety
