Geoscience BC is a non-profit organization that receives funding from the provincial government. Our mandate is to attract mineral and oil & gas investment to British Columbia through generating, interpreting and publicly distributing geoscience data in collaboration with First Nations, communities, governments and industry.
Geoscience BC receives financial support from the province of British Columbia for our research activities. Since our inception in 2005, the Province has provided $61.7 million in funding to Geoscience BC for earth science research. Geoscience BC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Technical direction of the organization is provided by volunteer Technical Advisory Committees (mineral exploration, oil & gas and geothermal) whose membership is largely from the exploration industry.
Many of our projects are identified through a process of requests for proposals (RFPs). We have two main RFPs: open requests for applied or innovative geoscience projects that will attract investment to BC; and targeted requests that are more directed proposals to undertake specific work, or calls for bids on specific surveys, in order to achieve program objectives. In all cases, Geoscience BC seeks collaborative and partnership projects that come with supportive funding. To date, projects funded include newly collected geoscience data, new ideas and new technologies, compilations and reprocessing of existing data, and applications of existing technologies in new areas.
As a non-government, non-profit organization, Geoscience BC is able to be flexible, responsive and entrepreneurial, and operate with relatively low overheads. It also has a unique ability to engage with communities and other non-government organizations in design and delivery of geoscience programs, and to provide information and knowledge to the public about geoscience and the exploration sector.
Geoscience BC works in collaboration with First Nations, communities, governments and industry to identify and fund applied geoscience projects to fulfill our mandate.
