Geoscience BC's Strategic Plan 2018-2022 guides the organization to achieve its vision and accomplish its mission.

To build the Strategic Plan, we listened to 400 people from a wide range of partners and interest groups, and heard that publicly-accessible geoscience has never been more important.

The plan describes who we are as an organization and sets out the priority areas of work that will be our focus to 2022.
