Research, Monitoring & Reporting

Sharing key scientific and technical information is an important part of monitoring and managing our natural resources.


Natural resources are materials and substances that occur naturally and that can be used for provincial economic gain, including minerals, forests, fertile land, and water. Some natural resources, such as soil and water, are essential for the existence of life.


Environmental monitoring activities in B.C.

Environmental monitoring, such as air quality or water quality monitoring, allows us to better understand and respond to threats or changes to our environment.


Environmental reporting helps guide the management of British Columbia's natural resources, and provides objective information to the public.
