Previous Reports & Indicators

All past State of Environment and State of Forests Reports for British Columbia are available below in PDF format. In 2012 the Province of British Columbia moved to a web-based, iterative approach to publishing indicators and environmental data for reporting on the state of environment in B.C.

 

This is a list of all indicators published on-line since Environmental Reporting BC was launched in 2012. As indicators are updated, previous versions are archived and available in PDF format below.
