Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson argues this and other woodlot licences will create new job opportunities in the forest sector. 

“This new woodlot licence is a great opportunity for the Peace River region, and part of the government’s ongoing plan to support prosperous rural forest economies by improving access to forest tenures.” 

A woodlot licence is made up of a combination of private land with up to 1,200 hectares of Crown land. The successful licence holder will have exclusive rights to harvest timber in the area. In exchange, they must manage the connected portion of private land.
