We assess and make decisions on applications, ensure industry compliance, in part through inspections and monitoring and actively disseminating information, consult and liaise with First Nations, landowners, industry and the public and engage in open and transparent communications.

The Commission supports opportunities for employee growth, recognizes individual and group contributions, demonstrates accountability at all levels and instills pride and confidence in our organization.
