BCFC Regulatory Review: Request for Proposals Issued

The Commission has been mandated by the Province to conduct a review of the
Coastal Ferry Act as it relates to the regulation of ferry operators. The objective of the Review is to recommend to the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure changes to the Act which will better enable the Commissioner to balance the interests of ferry users with the financial sustainability needs of ferry operators.

The Commission is seeking proposals from consultants to provide advice and assistance to facilitate completion of the Commissioner’s review and development of his recommendations to the Minister for potential changes to the Coastal Ferry Act.  This includes assessing the results of Price Cap regulation since 2003 as measured against the Province’s stated public policy and the guiding principles contained in the Act.
