Forest Stewardship Plans
Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (Canfor) maintains Forest Stewardship Plans at each of our British Columbia Divisions specific to the land base associated with our Forest Licenses. These plans demonstrate how Canfor will meet the legal obligation to address the objectives set by government under the Forest and Range Practices Act.
These plans are in the process of being replaced and Canfor is providing an opportunity for interested members of the public to comment. Please follow the link below to a map of Canfor's BC Operations for more information on the plan covering your specific geographic area of interest.
