FORT NELSON, B.C. – The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality and the Fort Nelson First Nation have formally submitted their Community Forest Agreement to the Province.

If approved by the Province, the agreement will allow the two communities to manage timber harvesting around Fort Nelson. The agreement would cover a radius of 100 kilometres around the community and would include over 200,000 hectares of timber harvesting land base.

The Fort Nelson Community Forest would allow the two communities the chance to restart the forest industry in the community.
