Name of creator
The Environment and Land Use Committee Secretariat was established in 1973 as the staff support unit of the Environment and Land Use Committee. The Environment and Land Use Committee (ELUC) was established by the Social Credit government in 1971 under the Environment and Land Use Act (SBC 1971, c. 17). The mandate of the committee was to establish and recommend programs to increase public awareness of the environment, to ensure that environmental concerns were fully considered in the administration of land and resource development, and to make recommendations and reports to the Executive Council. It was empowered to conduct public inquiries, appoint technical committees, and hire experts, specialists and researchers. The Secretariat was established after the New Democratic government was elected in 1972 to provide recommendations and solutions to the committee by coordinating and analyzing interdepartmental studies. It was the first time in B.C.’s political history that a permanent staff served a committee of cabinet. The Secretariat was organized into three units that operated interdependently to improve and apply integrated resource planning within the regional districts of the province. The units were Resource Planning, Special Projects, and Resource Analysis. Under a new Social Credit government in 1975, the Secretariat functioned in a diminished role within the Dept. of the Environment and the renamed Ministry of the Environment in 1976. It was reorganized into two units, Resource Planning and Special Projects. The Environment and Land Use Committee continued as an Executive Council committee but the Secretariat was disestablished in 1980.
