Forest Practices Board Releases Annual Report for 2006

VICTORIA – The Forest Practices Board has released its annual report for 2005/2006. The annual report details the key findings and topics the board has examined during the past fiscal year. The annual report gives the public an idea of the diversity of issues brought to the board through random audits, investigations of public complaints, special projects, and administrative appeals.

The board’s primary role is to assess how well forest licensees and government agencies are complying with legislation on the ground. The annual report also includes projects and new initiatives that will ensure that the board will be ready when the Forest and Range Practices Act is fully implemented in 2007-2008.
