The BC Common Ground Alliance is a non-profit organization established to lead development of consistent practices and coordination of activities to ensure the highest possible standards of pubic safety, worker safety and damage prevention in connection with underground infrastructure. The BC CGA is a unique consensus-driven organization with a direct conduit to regulatory innovation. it is open to any individual or organization with an interest in safety and underground infrastructure or disturbance are responsible and accountable for the safety of their own procedures. It acknowledges, however, that it is in everyone's best interest to work together to develop safe and consistent practices. The BC Common Ground Alliance works to offer practical tools and to foster an environment in which anyone resident or doing business in British Columbia is aware and compliant with the best practices in regard to underground infrastructure or disturbance, in order to ensure the safest possible environment for the citizens and workers of the province.
