Update February 18 2021
As government officials change positions, we are keeping up with new people in new positions within government that have the ability to submit changes for legislative consideration. To that end we received a note today from the new person within government and the response in part is noted below, but the bottom line is no changes in the legislation on the horizon. All the public can do is continue to put pressure on thier MLA's.
"In regard to your questions about upcoming amendments to CIFSA and specifically whether the Province is considering approving Alkaline Hydrolysis as an accepted form of cremation in BC, while future changes to CIFSA are under consideration, such work is being prioritized in relation to other government policy priorities and is not moving forward at this time."
"While the Province fully supports the development and use of technology that reduces our environmental footprint, the technology has implications that are broader than the Cremation, Internment and Funeral Services Act. In order to pursue such changes, additional research, public policy analysis and stakeholder engagement is required on topics that include environmental, local government zoning, worker safety, operator training, respectful handling of human remains, health and consumer protection considerations."
