Public Engagement

Before an applicant can submit an application for an oil and gas permit to the BC Oil and Gas Commission, certain consultation and notification activities have to be completed as per the Commission’s new Consultation and Notification Regulation. This regulation creates a formalized public engagement process that allows landowners and affected parties to express concerns about how the proposed oil and gas activity may affect them.

The Commission has created documentation to assist oil and gas companies and those affected by oil and gas activities to understand what tools are available to them when entering a public engagement process.
