2003/04 – 2005/06 SERVICE
Ministry of Energy and Mines
Columbia’s energy and mining sectors will be key to restoring a
healthy provincial economy. The Ministry of Energy and Mines will
take an active role to stimulate investment in these sectors. Through
sound fiscal management and efficient regulations, these sectors
will be increasingly important. British Columbians rely on the wealth
they will generate to support our vital public services like health
care and education.
The Ministry of Energy and Mines 2003/04 – 2005/06 Service
Plan describes how the ministry will continue to take aggressive
action to streamline regulations and make doing business in BC easier.
The full potential of our abundant natural resources have yet to
be realized. Our new energy plan taps into our vast natural gas,
oil, coal, coalbed methane, electricity and other mineral resources
that will bring investment, jobs and prosperity for all British
Columbians. This service plan describes actions that will be implemented
to ensure British Columbians realize the benefits.
I am pleased to present the Ministry of Energy and Mines 2003/04
– 2005/06 Service Plan. This plan will guide and measure our
success in developing a thriving and competitive economy that includes
healthy energy and mining sectors in British Columbia.
