To develop the environmental industry in British Columbia through novel environmental business and technology solutions
To foster the growth of the industry and to promote technology development and innovation in the sector
To evolve and harmonize the environment industry's burgeoning sustainable development portfolio
The BC Environment Industry Association (BCEIA) is British Columbia's most recognized and longest running professional business association dedicated to member companies that operate in the many sectors that define environmental defence writ large.
Comprised of world-class engineering and environmental service companies, technology providers, research organizations, environmental analysts and consultants, disaster response, government agencies and environmental law firms… the BCEIA offers a diverse range of expert knowledge on the business of minimizing, mitigating and defending our shared human and natural environments from human activity.
The BCEIA is committed to networking within the industry; establishing an effective industry liaison and advocacy presence; building partnerships; strengthening business development and competitiveness of its membership; increasing the product and service profiles of its members; and raising awareness of the industry in terms of its economic, human and environmental impact.
The environment industry of British Columbia is undergoing an exciting process of re-orientation and renewal due to the recent convergence of environmental, energetic and sustainability-related issues. This convergence has prompted a fundamental shift in stakeholder participation and perception of the environment, which in turn, has placed a greater emphasis on the implementation of a proactive environmental and social license strategy for business operation versus a reactive non-compliant one.
As global economic and political forces shift and influence the operational sectors of its membership, the BCEIA, through new alliances and strengthened partnerships, shall endeavour to ensure that the organization takes a leading, vital role in representing its members in shaping British Columbia's future.
Our membership includes leaders in environmental fields that touch on all aspects of environmental management and planning. We are home to a range of environmental consultants, contractors, technology suppliers, analytical services, legal experts and much more.

The BCEIA is British Columbia’s most recognized and longest running professional business association focused on building strategic partnerships and offering a ‘strength in numbers’ approach with our likeminded membership. BCEIA members enjoy the ability to access various levels of government involved in our industry as well as international trade agencies doing business with British Columbia and Canada.
Our conferences and events allow members to learn from high profile guest presenters and provide a forum that is focused on professional growth and information sharing in the environmental sector.
