Forest Practices Board will examine activities of Canadian Forest Products and Canfor in Canada

Forest Practices Board will examine the activities of Canadian Forest Products Ltd. on forest licence A17007 during the week of September 11, 2017. FL A17007 is located in the Fort Nelson Resource District, in the Fort Nelson Timber Supply Area (TSA). The TSA is bordered by Alberta to the east and the Northwest Territories and the Yukon Territory to the north. Most of the sites that will be audited are to the east of the Rocky Mountains.

According to the announcement, auditors will examine whether forestry activities carried out between September 2016 and September 2017, met the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act. Canfor has not harvested any timber under this licence since 2008, so the audit will focus mainly on road and bridge maintenance, silviculture obligations and fire protection.
