Updated Online EAO Project Information & Collaboration System

On February 2, 2017, the BC Environmental Assessment Office released a test ("beta") version of a new and improved EAO Project Information & Collaboration system (EPIC). This beta application – a fully-functional starting point upon which to build continuous improvements – makes it faster and easier to find important information, access key documents, and send in your comments during public comment periods. The Environmental Assessment Office is seeking your feedback on this beta version to build more functionality and improvements in subsequent releases. The new version of EPIC is now publicly available at https://projects.eao.gov.bc.ca and can also be accessed via the Environmental Assessment Office's website.

More detailed information about this initiative can be found at:http://www.eao.gov.bc.ca/EPIC
