BC Environmental Assessment Office

BC Environmental Assessment Office

The Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) is a neutral agency that manages the review of proposed major projects in British Columbia, as required by the Environmental Assessment Act.

The Environmental Assessment Office is a provincial government agency that assesses proposed major projects for potential significant adverse environmental, social, economic, health and heritage effects in British Columbia, as required by the Environmental Assessment Act.  The EAO is responsible for neutrally administering environmental assessments that meaningfully engage Aboriginal groups, the public and government experts during the assessment and the monitoring and compliance stage.

The EAO plays a key role in the success of the government’s major economic expansion initiatives, actively engaging a range of interests and facilitating solutions.  The sector strategies and targets included in the BC Jobs Plan (e.g., new mines and liquid natural gas pipelines) are having a significant impact on the demand for environmental assessments.  As the volume of major development in BC increases, the EAO is increasingly challenged to meet legislated review timelines, proponents’ expectations for responsive service, and public expectations for transparency and openness.  Modernizing the EAO’s current business processes is a critical element of a broader strategy to meet this demand while continuing to conduct world-class environmental assessments.

One of the results of these modernization efforts was the release to public beta in February 2017 of the new EAO Project Information and Collaboration System (EPIC), around which the EAO is working to build a community of continuous improvement, through the BCDevExchange as well as other avenues. To get involved, drop us a line at epicsupport.eao@gov.bc.ca or, if you're a developer, feel invited to create pull requests from our default "develop" branch (click here to create one automatically) or watch the Opportunities section for open opportunities to contribute to a world-leading environmental assessment process.
