Dates of existence



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.
