Audit of Forest Planning and Practices, and Forest Practices Code Enforcement in the Fort Nelson Forest District
In June 2001, the Board undertook a series of audits in an area within the Fort Nelson Forest District. This report, in addition to the published audit reports, is provided as an overview to assist the public to understand the effectiveness of overall forest stewardship in the audit area. Under section 189 of the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia Act, the Board chair is empowered to make such a special report regarding a matter that is in the public interest. This report is drawn from audit evidence and additional observations; and, in conjunction with the audits, reports on the overall stewardship of the land within the audit area.
