The primary focus of this position is to act as a regional technical advisor and provide support for the RSEA project and for regional implementation of the Cumulative Effects Framework. The Cumulative Effects framework is a set of policies, procedures and decision-support tools that helps identify and manage cumulative effects across BC’s natural resource sector. RSEA was developed to credibly assess the effects of natural resource development on the rights of Participating First Nations and to use the results of the assessment to inform and recommend management responses. In the Northeast Region both initiatives are strongly linked as the Regional Strategic Environmental Initiative project is currently leading various cumulative effects projects. Working with First Nations and other agencies, the position will provide technical expertise as it relates to natural resource information, associated policy, and development of management objectives and recommendations.
