The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development is conducting a review of the Private Managed Forest Land Program (also known as the Managed Forest Program). The review is one of several policy reforms announced as part of the Coast Forest Sector Revitalization Initiative.

The review will examine how well the Private Managed Forest Land Program is meeting its goals to:

  • encourage private landowners to manage their lands for long-term forest production, and
  • encourage sustainable forest management practices, including the protection of key public environmental values.

Visit the maps page to see where property in the Private Managed Forest Land Program is located across the province.

In order to determine where the program is most effective, and if improvements are needed, the ministry wishes to understand the different views and concerns of all British Columbians. Input received from this engagement process is an important part of the ministry’s review of the program.

All feedback received will help inform recommendations to be developed for fall 2019.
