Forest Practices Board reported audit results of Canada Resurgence Developments

Forest Practices Board reported audit results of forest licence A16884, held by Canada Resurgence Developments (CRD). According to the announcement, the audit found most forestry activities complied with the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act, but found two activities did not meet legal requirements.

The operating area for FL A16884 lies within the Nass Timber Supply Area (TSA), near Meziadin Lake and Bowser Lake along Hwy 37. CRD harvested approximately 142 930 cubic metres of timber during the two-year audit period

Tim Ryan, Forest Practices Board’s chair, commented:

“Our auditors found that CRD did not ensure that two log stringer bridges were safe for industrial users, which does not comply with the legal requirements.

CRD’s silviculture records for some of the free-growing cutblocks were missing, and the auditors were unable to confirm that free-growing obligations were met for those cutblocks,” said Ryan. “This also does not comply with the legal requirements.”

Earlier Forest Practices Board reported audit results of Husby Forest Products forestry activities in Canada.
