Brownfields Committee

This committee of multi-disciplined brownfield/contaminated sites practitioners meets regularly to discuss developments, opportunities and regulatory changes in the brownfield industry.

Hazardous Waste Committee

Members of this committee provide direct oversight to the BCEIA Hazardous Waste Compliance Improvement Project (HWCIP). They also monitor legislation, policy and regulatory reform.

Education and Professional Development Committee

The goal of this committee is to explore opportunities for professional development for BCEIA members as well as training and mentorship programs for those who wish to enter the sector.

First Nations Committee

A focus on improving communications, cooperation and understanding between First Nations and environmental companies, increasing First Nations participation in environmental industries, are the cornerstones of this environmental committees’ involvement with First Nations across the province. The committee seeks to establish partnerships, build enterprise, and enhance labour development with First Nations communities and people.

Membership Committee

The Membership Committee works to recruit and welcome new members at each level of membership from Student to Platinum. We also strive to retain our current membership by ensuring our members receive the full benefit of their membership.

Government Relations Committee

The Government Relations Committee provides a conduit to discuss environmental policy and upcoming changes to regulations within the Province of British Columbia. The committee’s role is not be lobby government for change but to be an active participant in the development and ongoing discussions related to regulatory review.
