First Nations

The BC Oil and Gas Commission (Commission) is the province’s independent regulator of oil and gas activities and is responsible for permitting and overseeing petroleum and natural gas operations in British Columbia. The Commission, as an agent of the Crown, fulfills the Crown’s obligation to consult with First Nations prior to the authorization of activities under the Oil and Gas Activities Act and related specified enactments for which the Commission is the responsible decision maker.  

The Commission looks for opportunities to effectively engage with communities across the province of British Columbia to encourage the participation of First Nations and Aboriginal peoples in processes affecting them.
