How to Become a B.C. Conservation Officer


A B.C. Conservation Officer’s job is diverse and demanding. As the front lines of environmental law enforcement in British Columbia, a tremendous amount of responsibility and trust is invested in each member of the Conservation Officer Service (COS).

There are over 69,000 law enforcement officers in Canada, and only 150 of them can be B.C. Conservation Officers.

Generally, the COS considers applications once a year, establishing an eligibility list to fill known and anticipated vacancies up to a 12-month period. The annual intake for entry-level positions occurs early in the New Year, in preparation for the Western Conservation Law Enforcement Academy (WCLEA).
