Environmental Regulation and Enforcement


​​Metro Vancouver develops regulations to protect public health, the environment, infrastructure, and worker safety.

These include​ bylaws, regulations, and codes of practice related to:

  • Air emissions from industries, trades, businesses, equipment, activities, operations, and residences
  • Wastewater from industries, businesses, and institutions
  • Privately owned solid waste facilities and waste hauler records​

We iss​ue permits and licences, and assess whether our requirements and bylaws are being met. ​
