The BC Government is currently offering two citizen engagement opportunities that may impact private managed forest land operations. Engagement opportunities are a chance to input into government policy and legislation decisions.
Watershed Security Strategy

The Intentions Paper is the mid-way point in the development of the Strategy and Fund and builds on what was heard during the first period of engagement in early 2022.The purpose of the Strategy and Fund is to lead the changes needed to create a future for B.C. where our watersheds are better cared for and stewarded together.
The Province is committed to developing a coast-wide strategy to address the health and stewardship of marine ecosystems and resilience of coastal communities.
The Province is inviting feedback and suggestions on an Intentions Paper that outlines potential solutions and policies that the Province can implement to achieve better outcomes for marine life and people. All input will help inform development of the Coastal Marine Strategy.
