Land Use Planning for Provincial Public Land
Ninety-four percent of British Columbia is comprised of provincial public land. The purpose of land use planning is to set strategic direction to guide sustainable resource stewardship and management of provincial public land and waters that meets economic, environmental, social, and cultural objectives.
Existing land use plans in B.C. cover over 90% of provincial public land. In 2018, the B.C. government committed $16 million over three years to work collaboratively with Indigenous governments, communities, and stakeholders to modernize land use planning.
