Natural Resource Standards & Guidance

Explore provincial standards and guidance for the natural resource sector, such as best management practices and inventory standards. 

Best Management Practices

Guidelines and Best Management Practices (BMPs) are approaches based on known science that, if followed, should allow clients to meet the required standard or achieve the desired objective.

BMP and Guideline documents exist to help you act as a steward of the environment. The information in these documents will help to ensure that your proposed development activities are planned and carried out in compliance with the various legislation, regulations, and policies that apply to your activity. 

Inventory Standards (RISC)

The Resources Information Standards Committee (RISC) manages the development of new standards as well as updates to existing standards.
