BC Parks Impact Assessment Process

The BC Parks Impact Assessment Process ensures that the stewardship of British Columbia's system of protected areas is included in all activities and practices that are conducted within these areas. Its purpose is to: provide for the assessment of all potential impacts of proposed actions in provincial protected areas; ensure provincially consistent standards are followed; provide an open and accountable assessment process; provide a forum for standardized and documented decision-making; and, provide for participation in the review process by the proponent, other agencies, First Nations, and the public, where required.

The 1999 policy and guidance documents for the BC Parks Impact Assessment are currently being updated. Please check back shortly for the latest documentation. If you have any questions, please contact us.
