NIFO FSP Contact Info
FSP – March 2017

The 2012 North Vancouver Island Forest Stewardship Plan (FSP) was approved by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations under the Forest and Range Practices Act (FRPA).  FSPs do not show specific locations of proposed harvest areas and roads.  Instead, the FSP identifies larger Forest Development Units (FDUs) within which harvesting and road constructions may occur over a five year period.  Forestry activities conducted within FDUs must be consistent with results and strategies specified in the FSP.  These results and strategies, in turn, must be consistent with FRPA and government approved objectives for the management for forest resources in the planning area.  Stakeholders were invited to provide information during the 60 day review and comment period associated with the development of the 2007 FSP.

The following document was submitted to the government for approval:
