Overseeing a land base of 94.8 million hectares, the Ministry of Forests leads and delivers programs which ensure the sustainable management of BC’s natural resources. Within this large, diverse and complex structure, the Compliance and Enforcement Branch (CEB) represents the law enforcement arm of the Ministry. CEB – a provincial line of sight program – applies over 50 acts and statutes to govern more than 1,200 natural resource authorizations; deploys natural resource operations teams to ensure compliance and enforcement of resource management laws; and protects the public’s interest in the management of BC’s diversity of natural resources.
