Audit of Forest Planning and Practices on Nisga’a Lands

As part of its 2002 audit program, the Forest Practices Board audited forest planning and practices on Nisga’a lands. This audit is the second of five annual audits of compliance with the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia Act and related regulations (the Code) as well as the forestry-related requirements of the Nisga’a Final Agreement (the Agreement). The Agreement requires the Forest Practices Board to perform compliance audits of forest agreements and licences on Nisga’a lands in each year of a defined five-year transition period that ends on May 10, 2005.
