Everyone is welcome to a land-and-forest planning information session on March 13, 2024, in Port McNeill. The session will seek public input on two ongoing projects to support long-term forest health, climate adaptation, and a sustainable and secure forestry sector: The Gwa’ni Modernized Land Use Planning Project – an intergovernmental project between the ‘Namgis First Nation and the Province built with stakeholder and community engagement over the past two years to update land-use planning in the Nimpkish Valley; and Forest Landscape Plan and Forest Operations Plan for Tree Farm Licence (TFL) 37, in the Nimpkish Valley – jointly developed by Western Forest Products and ‘Namgis First Nation and supported by the Province, the plan proposes a consolidated approach to forest planning and management at the landscape level (e.g. timber supply area, TFL or large area-based forest tenure) and facilitates collaboration between government, First Nations and licensees, with input from interest groups, communities and the public.
