Pure Resource Development Agency (PRDA) is a Smithers based firm focused on helping community members in Northwestern British Columbia. Our goal is to guide our clients through regulatory permitting processes in order to help realize their development dreams.

We provide application agency services for small to mid-sized resource projects such as private land subdivision, crown land use and acquisition, mineral exploration, placer operations, sand, gravel and quarry extraction, agricultural land use, water use, and more.

Each of our clients and their development projects are different and PRDA will tailor our services to your projects needs. For projects requiring technical assessments for permitting, we offer project coordination services for our clients that will connect you with the qualified professionals you need.

Some projects require multiple authorizations or multiagency review processes. PRDA offers liaison services with various branches of municipal, regional provincial and federal governments and will track the progress of your application.

PRDA operates within the traditional territory of the Wet'suwet'en First Nation and we recognize their rights as the keepers of this territory. Our clients projects are located within many of the traditional territories of Indigenous communities in Northwestern British Columbia. PRDA offers liaison and engagement services with Indigenous governments on our clients behalf.
