Electronic Forest Management Initiative (e-FM)
Electronic Submission Framework (ESF)
The Ministry’s shift to conduct business through electronic transmission of
information with the business community is called the Electronic Forest
Management initiative (e-FM).
The e-FM initiative focuses on business transformation, efficient approval processes and electronic transactions and records.
The Electronic Submission Framework (ESF) allows clients of the Ministry of Natural Resource Operations to submit data electronically for Forest Tenure, Silviculture, As Built Roads and Forest Stewardship Plans.
Important: Access to applications may require a BC Government user ID (BCeID).
