2023 has been a great year for FESBC. In January Premier Eby announced another $50 million for FESBC to help workers and communities use more waste wood from the forest and reduce wildfire risk. FESBC started approving new projects right away and now most of the funding is allocated. Some projects are already completed on the ground, many more are currently underway, and all will have been completed by March 31 2025.
