What was this engagement about?
Comments were accepted until Feb. 28, 2017, on proposed amendments to the 2006 Land Use Objectives Order in the Kiteen (26,000 hectares) and Skeena Islands (4,500 hectares) portions of the Kalum Sustainable Resource Management Plan (SRMP) area in northwestern B.C.
The Kalum SRMP area is 1,642,270 hectares in size and includes the city of Terrace, the municipality of Kitimat and a number of smaller rural and First Nations communities.
The proposed amendments will address resource values, including First Nations cultural heritage resources, landscape biodiversity, wildlife habitat as well as rare ecosystems in the Kalum SRMP area.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Feedback on the issues and comments related to the discussion papers were accepted until Feb. 28, 2017 by mail, fax and email.
Public feedback on the proposed amendments will be considered prior to implementation. Once amended, the land use objectives in the order must be adhered to by all major forest licence holders operating in the area.
