Following the passage of Bill 37, exciting changes are coming, including a new name and expanded mandate! In addition to our current responsibilities with respect to oil, gas and geothermal development, we will soon become the single-window regulator for the production of hydrogen, ammonia and methanol; have an expanded role in carbon capture and storage, and we will be known as the BC Energy Regulator.

The Commission is self-funded through the application of industry fees and levies. We are accountable to the provincial legislature and the public through the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation.

At the beginning of each year, we prepare a Three-Year Service Plan to the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation as required by OGAA and the Budget Transparency and Accountability Act, that commits us to performance targets for each year.

At the end of each year, we submit to the Minister, an Annual Report on our performance against the Three-Year Service Plan. The Annual Report also includes our annual audited financial statements and is tabled in the British Columbia Legislature.

We also prepare an annual Financial Information Act Report, Statement of Executive Compensation, and Board Remuneration Report.

Each year our Board Chair and Directors, and the Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation sign a Mandate Letter setting out government’s overarching priorities and at a high level, the government’s expectations of the Commission. The Commission articulates its corporate strategy through the long-term goals, objectives, and activities documented within its Strategic Plan.
