The British Columbia River Outfitters Association

Provisions

Special provisions are guidelines that have been developed for more than 125 river sections in British Columbia. These provisions outline the basic requirements that we have agreed need to be met in order to operate a safe and enjoyable trip for our guests.

The approved special provisions include every river section in BC. New rivers are proposed to industry annually and vetted by operators to ensure a consistent approach to requirements.

The provisions are posted in PDF format:

Fast Fact

While the United States was opened up by covered wagon, Canada, and B.C. in particular, was opened up by river. Big rivers like the Columbia and Fraser and small ones like the Kicking Horse and Nimpkish were the highways for First Nations people, European explorers and traders and later loggers and miners. Almost every river has a historic story to tell.
