This email invites you to be part of online consultations on British Columbia’s Provincial Athletic Commissioner regulations.

On May 30, 2012, the Athletic Commissioner Act was passed in the BC

legislature. The Commissioner will regulate and supervise professional

contests in BC such as boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts.

The key duties of the commissioner will be to:

•       Establish a consistent standard of qualifications and safety

protocols for all participants and officials through a uniform licensing

and permitting framework; and

•       Ensure compliance with the Act and its regulations.

In order to implement the Act and establish the Commissioner’s Office,

regulations that set out the policies and procedures of the Act must be

approved by the B.C. government.

The Ministry would like to receive your input through the website on

topics such as: the structure and operations of the Commissioner’s

Office; the types of rules that will be followed for contests; the

licensing framework; the fees to obtain licenses and permits; and the

medical requirements for the contestants. These topics are outlined in a

Consultation Paper. The site will also feature a survey with specific

questions for review.

The Consultation Paper for The Provincial Athletic Commissioner can be found on the Ministry’s website:

The Ministry would like to hear your comments on the Consultation Paper. Comments can be submitted via the website.

Comments to the Ministry should be made on or before October 20, 2012.

Thank you.

Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development
