Vancouver, BC – May 4, 2021 – Geoscience BC’s Annual Report 2020-21 highlights innovative and collaborative research projects in British Columbia that are contributing to BC’s economic recovery, lower emission future and stronger relationships with Indigenous groups, industry, local governments and academia.

It provides an overview of our Minerals, Energy (Oil & Gas; Geothermal) and Water research, as well as an update on our Governance, Management & Finance, Public Access & Data Management and External Relations & Communications focus areas.
