MOVING DIRT IS ABOUT TO GET HARDER!  Join us on June 17 and find out what you need to know about the 14 Amendments to the Contaminated Sites Regulation.

  • Earlier this year, the British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy issued an intentions paper titled “Regulating Soil Relocation.”
  • The paper details the Ministry’s proposed new regulatory system for the movement of uncontaminated soil within the province of British Columbia. The upcoming changes will enact as part of the Stage 14 Amendments to the Contaminated Sites Regulation.
  • These new regulations will make moving soil from a wide variety of sites more difficult and costly, potentially disrupting excavation schedules and logistics.
