The province is moving to review the fiscal fitness of Crown corporations and other provincially-funded schools, universities, colleges and health sector operations.
The public sector review was announced by finance minister Carole James, who said the information will help develop the 2018 budget and a funding plan for the next three years.
"My expectation is that the review will give [the] government a better picture of the risks, finances and fiscal forecasts," she said in a release.
"Every additional dollar that is carefully managed can be used to help make life more affordable for people."
Crown corporations under review will include:
- BC Hydro
- BC Lottery Corporation
- Liquor Distribution Branch
- Insurance Corporation of British Columbia
- BC Housing Management Commission
According to the release, the province will hire independent consultants to help assess financial information.
