Consultations

Ongoing Consultations

BC Egg works with the public and industry stakeholders to ensure all voices are heard across a number of different facets of operation.  The following are current or ongoing consultations.

Consolidated Order Review

The Consolidated Order is required to be reviewed every five years. The current document was last reviewed in 2017. In this initial round of consultations, BC Egg is focusing on key programs within the Consolidated Order to ensure they continue to meet the needs of producers and the industry. Once the Board has had time to review the feedback, a second consultation will be presented to review recommended changes to the Consolidated Order prior to a final submission to BCFIRB.

The consultations will be conducted in manageable sections: this first round will be split into four separate surveys, with one survey being sent out every two weeks. Each consultation survey will have a response deadline of two weeks from the date sent.
