What is this engagement about?
Using a discussion paper as the starting point for dialogue, the B.C. government is seeking ideas on how to create or change current policies (including legislation and regulation), programs, tools, guidance and advance partnerships to support a vibrant, diverse forest sector for B.C.’s Interior.
The Interior Forest Sector Renewal consists of two engagement activities.
Through this engagement process you are invited to share ideas for change either through the online feedback form or by making a written submission, as part of the “Interior Forest Policy Initiative.” All British Columbians, including forest sector employers, employees, organizations, professionals, and Indigenous communities, are invited to participate.
The second engagement activity is called the Timber Supply Area Coalition process. Here, forest industry leaders have been asked to connect with the Indigenous, community and labour leaders in the area(s) where they operate, such as defined timber supply areas, and self-formulate coalitions willing to work together on localized visions for the forest sector’s future.
The online public engagement period will run from July 18, 2019 to October 11, 2019 at 4 pm.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Feedback collected will help government determine the next steps in forest policy changes, with further policy direction based on the feedback anticipated for spring 2020.
