Human Health Risk Assessment

The Fraser Basin Council thanks all who participated in the first phase of a three-phase human health risk assessment and brought forward health concerns about oil and gas development in northeastern British Columbia. FBC carried out Phase 1 for the BC Ministry of Health and submitted a report at the end of March, 2012. The report and a related compendium are available on the Ministry’s website.

Phase 2 is now underway, carried out by environmental and health consulting firm Intrinsik for the Ministry.

The Human Health Risk Assessment is a three-phase project to identify, explore and assess concerns about human health relating to oil and gas development in Northeastern British Columbia. The full risk assessment consists of three phases: 1) a public engagement to identify health concerns, 2) a human health risk assessment based on findings from Phase 1 and 3) a report to the Province, stakeholders and the public.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
