British Columbia Building Envelope Council (BCBEC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a platform for proponents of the building industry to discuss issues and exchange information on building envelope issues. BCBEC was registered under the Societies' Act in 1990.

BCBEC is composed of all segments of the industry including members of governments, consultants in the building envelope field, product manufacturer's, manufacturing associations, contractors, and educators.

BCBEC is comprised of approximately 350 members. The predominant mode of information sharing is by luncheon seminars held once per month. At the seminars, speakers deliver a visual presentation relating to their particular expertise.

Once a year BCBEC holds a full-day seminar, usually dealing with a wide range of topics.
BCBEC is an organization dedicated to information sharing; not marketing.

WorkSafeBC presents:
Hiding in Plain Sight homeowner asbestos awareness campaign
Asbestos can be found in more than 3,000 building materials manufactured before 1990. Because it’s found in so many common building products, it can be a danger hiding in plain sight in many homes. And when it’s disturbed, anyone working on the project could be at risk.
