On February 12, 2021, the BC Provincial Health Services Authority responded (regarding RT-PCR and antigen testing). They refused to answer the question on error rates, but instead, simply said that it met the standards for accreditation.

On December 10, 2020, NSERC, the National Science and Engineering Research Council responded with “no records” to 5 questions asked in an access-to-information filing. This questions were:
[1] Proof of isolation of SARS-COV-2 (Covid-19)
[2] What is the error rate — false positives and negatives — of PCR tests?
[3] What is the error rate — false positives and negatives — of antibody tests?
[4] Have vaccine manufacturers been indemnified?
[5] Is there any national vaccine injury compensation program underway?

No records were available, but like the CIHR, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research.

On October 19, 2020, the BC Ministry of Health admitted it had no idea what the error rate for PCR tests were for Covid-19. The 30% they cite was just a “commonly quoted statistic”. In other words, they have no clue.
