Fort St. John Land and Resource Engagement – Results

Engagement Summary

The B.C. government is working with local First Nations, local government and other interested parties to prepare for an update to the Fort St. John Land and Resource Management Plan (LRMP). The LRMP is a set of strategic policies governing the management of Crown land and resources within the Peace Natural Resource District, which includes the Fort St. John Timber Supply Area. The LRMP identifies resource management zones and protected areas and sets out objectives and strategies that govern how land and resources are managed.

The Province is committed to developing a transparent and inclusive process to update and amend the Fort St. John LRMP. The Province, working with communities in the area, will collaborate on land use management with a variety of stakeholders, including industry, non-governmental organizations, the public, and others such as academia and special interest groups. The Province will conduct extensive engagement with communities throughout the life of the Project to ensure interests, values and challenges are identified and addressed.

As part of the scoping phase, we invited input and feedback from local communities, governments, industry, stakeholders and the general public to help determine the full extent of the Fort St. John LRMP amendment. Amending the Fort St. John LRMP will provide long-term land management direction for all land users.
