British Columbia Stone, Sand & Gravel Association

When the APABC was formed in 1988, the association produced a set of objectives and, in 2002, augmented this with the drafting of a Mission Statement :
 
APABC MISSION STATEMENT
 
A) To encourage the formulation of Government policies that support investment in the sustainable development of British Columbia's Aggregate Resource.
 
B) To provide a network for the effective exchange of information within the Aggregate Industry throughout British Columbia.
 
C) To communicate the economic importance and environmentally responsible nature of the Aggregate Industry to the Public and to Government.
 
D) To promote the exchange of information between the various mining-related associations throughout Canada.
 
E) To provide cost effective services to a broad range of Industry Members within British Columbia.
 


 
APABC OBJECTIVES - Set out in 1988
  1. To make the Association visible to the Provincial Government in order to facilitate the development of aggregate reserves and mines. The APABC has developed a Mission Statement that exemplifies its commitment to operating within the guidelines established by the Provincial Government responsible for Aggregate Mining.
     
  2. To communicate the facts of Wealth Creation of the Aggregate Industry, through taxation on property and income, and the legacy of redevelopment of aggregate mines after they are depleted, to the municipalities hosting the aggregate mine, into reuseable, productive developments.
     
  3. The APABC encourages all of its members to participate in the development of Government policies that directly affect the Aggregate Industry, through participation in the political system. The APABC would like to see both Government and Industry participate in the development of policies that will encourage investment in the sustainable development of BC's Sand & Gravel resources.
     
  4. The APABC provides an efficient and effective network for the exchange of information within the Aggregate Industry throughout B.C.
     
  5. To encourage the on-line education of the Aggregate Industry, to those who seek knowledge about our Industry, through the creation of educational materials that will be accessible on the Internet to all British Columbians.
     
  6. The APABC encourages the exchange of information between all Mining related industries throughout Canada and the United States of America. It is by exchanging this knowledge that Associations grow and prosper, and provide direction for their members.
