Environmental Emergencies Program First Annual Report
Client: B.C. Ministry of the Environment
Type of product: Annual Report
Target audience: B.C. Legislature and general public
Dates: June 2019 to October 2019
Details: B.C.’s Environmental Emergencies Program faced a new requirement to report to the Legislature and the public on its activities. It outlined the contents of its report and wanted a writer to create text on a limited timeline. The text had to meet the program reporting requirements in a way that would be informative and engaging for the public. We reviewed the outline and proposed some additional stories and summaries that would help make the legal and administrative background and related data more meaningful for general readers. We wrote several case stories and data summaries, and rewrote sections that were drafted by ministry staff. The draft went through several levels of review and revision until final copy was accepted. The Minister presented the report to the Legislature and has posted it on the Ministry website.
