On December 15, 2017, The BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change extended the existing use groundwater licence application fee waiver period from December 31, 2017 to March 1, 2019. If groundwater users submit their applications before March 1, 2019, their application fee will be waived. The application fee can range from $250 to $10,000 depending on the quantity and purpose of using water every year. Although the deadline has been extended to 2019, the government is encouraging groundwater users to submit their licence applications early, so their groundwater use is known and protected.
