Forestry Audit, BC Timber Sales: Squamish District, Chinook Business Area
This audit examined the activities of the BC Timber Sales (BCTS) program in the Squamish portion of the Chinook business area. BCTS’s operating area includes the Sea to Sky corridor – a world-famous recreational destination for both residents and visitors. Substantial First Nations interest, high recreational use and the natural values of the land base create significant challenges for BCTS and timber sale licensees carrying out forestry activities in the area. Overall, the audit found that BCTS and the timber sale licensees did a good job at meeting these challenges and the Board acknowledges their efforts.
