VICTORIA – The Forest Practices Board will audit forest planning and practices on five woodlots in the Campbell River Natural Resource District during the week of Oct. 17, 2022. Auditors will examine whether timber harvesting, roads, silviculture, fire protection and associated planning carried out between Oct. 1, 2020, and Oct. 20, 2022, met the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act, as well as the Woodlot Planning and Practices Regulation. The woodlots are located within the North Island Timber Supply Area, near the communities of Union Bay, Campbell River, Gold River and Tahsis on Vancouver Island. The Campbell River Natural Resource District was randomly selected for audit, and the board then selected woodlots as the focus of the audit. …Once the audit work is complete, a report will be prepared. Any party that may be adversely affected by the audit findings will have a chance to respond.
