2003/04 – 2005/06 SERVICE
Environmental Assessment Office
am pleased to present the Environmental Assessment Office Service
Plan 2003/04 to 2005/06. The purpose of this plan is to facilitate
the publicís understanding of the core business of the Environmental
Assessment Office, the resources it employs, and its expected results.
The Environmental Assessment Office plays an important role in
British Columbia by delivering a thorough, timely and integrated
environmental assessment process. It promotes the provincial goal
of sustainability by protecting the environment and fostering a
strong and vibrant economy.
Recent changes to the environmental assessment process will provide
greater flexibility to customize review procedures on a project-by-project
basis. I look forward to reporting on the benefits of these changes
and to working with the Environmental Assessment Office towards
a sustainable future.
Honourable Stanley B. Hagen
Minister of Sustainable Resource Management
and Minister Responsible for
the Environmental Assessment Office
