Audit of Forest Planning and Practices on Nisga’a Lands
The Nisga’a final agreement requires government to bring the forest lands on Nisga’a territory up to agreed-upon standards. The agreement also requires the Forest Practices Board to audit forest planning and practices on Nisga’a lands for the five-year period ending in May 2005.
The fifth audit began in 2005 and was completed in early 2007. The audit examined the planning and practices of West Fraser Mills Limited, Sim Gan Forest Corporation, New Skeena Forest Products, BC Timber Sales and the obligations of the Kalum district manager.
