Compliance and Enforcement Collaborative

The Compliance and Enforcement Collaborative (C&EC) is a cross-government inter-agency working group with a mandate to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the compliance and enforcement sector within British Columbia.

The sector is represented by members who are engaged in audit, compliance, investigation, inspection, security and enforcement activities. The C&EC leads the way in establishing corporate standards, training and educational requirements, and information and asset sharing toward improving continuity among its member agencies across British Columbia.


The C&EC consists of operational leaders from provincial and federal agencies, branches, Crown corporations, commissions and departments that have some form of compliance or enforcement function and/or protecting public safety.

The membership meets quarterly to:

  • Discuss updates and progress on C&EC target actions and projects
  • Share new trends and initiatives underway within the sector
  • Network among members, and
  • Build on their community of practice through continuing education in the form of presentations, training opportunities, and lessons learned
