Integrated Pest Management Plans

Development of the Integrated Pest
Management Plan

Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (Canfor) has five year Integrated Vegetation Management Plans (IVMP) specific to each Division. These plans five year span vary according to division. These plans apply to Canfor operations where Canfor is legally responsible (i.e. the Forest Act and/or the Forest Practices Code of BC Act and/or the Forest Range and Practices Act) to control problem vegetation growth on "net areas to be reforested" and access roads.

Purpose of the IVMP

To control problem vegetation using the principles of integrated vegetation management - which includes the following methods: Natural control, biological control, livestock grazing, manual brushing, and herbicides.

Primary benefits of the IVMP

  • Achieve the legal requirements to control problem vegetation growth on "net areas to be reforested" and allow access to those areas.
  • Minimize worker's exposure to potentially dangerous equipment (e.g. chainsaws, etc) and potential hazards to worker health (e.g. pesticides, petroleum products, carbon monoxide and other exhaust gases, etc).
  • Ensure that all activities are undertaken in a manner that minimizes the risk to the environment, fish & wildlife and human health.
  • Respect agreements with the public, landowners, other stakeholders and First Nations' treaty rights and/or traditional rights; and
  • Ensure compliance with all pertinent government laws and regulations.
