A major project is a proposal that requires a high degree of internal and external coordination.

It often requires an Environmental Assessment by the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) and/or the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) in addition to the Commission’s own permitting processes. You can find more information on these processes here.

A map and list of the major projects are available below. Click on the project name to see the application status and any permits that have been issued.
