In general, an economic nexus is established by actions inconsistent with a temporary basis for providing geoscience services. This includes, but is not limited to, doing any of the following in British Columbia:
- Providing geoscience services beyond the allowed 45 days,
- Opening an office from which geoscience services are offered or provided to the public,
- Becoming a resident, and
- Holding oneself out as willing or qualified to practise geoscience in British Columbia other than on a temporary basis.
