Biographical history

The Commission on Resources and the Environment (CORE) was appointed by the Government of British Columbia in January 1992 to initiate a process for making land use allocation decisions in the province, develop a long-term land use strategy and develop comprehensive land use plans. Headed by Stephen Owen, it brought together interested parties, including environmentalists, first nations, forest and tourism industries, and community groups. CORE convened three round tables in three regions: Vancouver Island, Cariboo-Chilcotin and Kootenay-Boundary. CORE was dismantled in 1996.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The series consists of administrative records, dating from 1992 to 1996, which document the functions and activities of the Commission on Resources and Environment (CORE). The records document British Columbia’s province-wide strategy for land use and related resource and environmental management. The records reflect CORE’s goal to develop land use plans on a regional and community basis, create protected areas, and develop dispute resolution mechanisms.

The series includes Treasury Board submissions, business plans, cabinet submissions, program and project evaluation files, CORE annual reports, regional land use plan summary reports, drafts of acts and orders-in-council drafts. It also consists of records relating to the Comptroller General, cabinet committees, the Commissioner on Resources and Environment Act, records regarding CORE staff meetings, and an organizational chart.
