Indigenous Engagement

The Ministry of Energy, Mines, and Low Carbon Innovation (the Ministry) is considering repealing the Greenhouse Gas Reduction (Renewable and Low Carbon Fuel Requirements) Act (Act), and replacing it with a New Act. 

The Ministry is seeking to engage with Indigenous peoples on these potential changes in accordance with the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (Declaration Act). 

These potential changes are explored in the following discussion paper. 

1. Low Carbon Fuel Standard Amendments 

The purpose of this paper is to discuss potential changes and the possible impacts to Indigenous peoples.  These potential changes would enhance the LCFS by closing compliance and enforcement gaps, improving the overall clarity and structure for regulated industry, and incorporating policy changes announced in the CleanBC Roadmap to 2030
