The Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources is mandated to promote the conservation and protection of the land, environment, and natural resources in BC through responsible stewardship guided by Métis values and traditional knowledge. The Ministry is responsible for overseeing initiatives related to natural resources, land, and Métis traditional knowledge across all MNBC departments and Ministries. Current priorities include, but are not limited to, climate change, emergency preparedness and response, consultation, harvesting and land use, migratory bird management and conservation, and species at risk. This Ministry works closely with the British Columbia Métis Assembly of Natural Resources (BCMANR).
