Deputy Ministers Mining Compliance & Enforcement (C&E) Board

Government has established a Deputy Ministers Mining Compliance and Enforcement (C&E) Board to oversee C&E planning across B.C. in all aspects of mineral exploration and development, with a key focus on environmental protection.

The board's mandate includes overseeing strategic improvements that enhance C&E effectiveness through integration and co-ordination of planning, training, policies, procedures, tools, evaluation and public reporting for mines in B.C. The board also ensures greater integration between the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation (EMLI), the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy (ENV), the Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) and other agencies.

The Mining C&E Board oversees government’s implementation of the recommendations from the B.C. Auditor General’s May 2016 report “An Audit of Compliance and Enforcement of the Mining Sector”. More information on the implementation of these recommendations can be found on the Mining Compliance and Enforcement page.
