Sep. 13, 2018

People in the Cowichan Lake communities and Pacheedaht First Nation will benefit from a unique community forest agreement for the Qala:yit Community Forest, reached in partnership with the provincial government.

The agreement with BC Timber Sales is the first of its kind.

One of the unique conditions of this community forest is that part of the land base includes BC Timber Sales’ operating area and, as a result, 7,296 cubic metres will be sold by BC Timber Sales.

Of the net revenue generated from the BC Timber Sales harvest, 50 per cent will be shared with the Qala:yit partners to use in their communities.
