Province launches online database of environmental rule breakers

 

The free database includes a wide variety of compliance and enforcement actions taken by ministry staff and enforcement officers. It includes orders, administrative sanctions, tickets and court convictions covering hunting and fishing, open burning, mud bogging, dam safety, and pesticide and pollution violations. 

 

Users can search by names, dates or types of infractions dating back to 2006 when the Ministry of Environment began public reporting of violations. 

 

Use the new search tool and find the most recent quarterly Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Summary at:  www.env.gov.bc.ca/main/compliance-reporting

 

The public can also help by reporting environmental violations and human-wildlife conflicts to the 24-hour Conservation Officer Service call centre at 1 877 952-7277.
