Are you part of the BC Provincial Government? How are you different?

The Board is a government agency, fulfilling an administrative tribunal role. However, the Board operates separately from any ministry and takes direction from its appointed Board. Although the Board does not have enforcement powers, it does provide oversight of government and industry forest and range practices. The Board’s role is similar to the Auditor General and the Ombudsperson, independently acting on its mandate to oversee Government and Industry.
