A Report of Natural Resource Violation is information provided to the Ministry of Forests alleging that an unauthorized activity (a contravention of the law) has occurred or is about to occur, or a contravention of an authorization (licence, lease, etc.) has occurred.

For Ministry of Forests staff to adequately address your report of a Violation, it is important to provide sufficient information. Please describe the Violation in as much detail as possible on this form and then mail, email, fax or bring a copy to the nearest FrontCounter BC Location.


The information that you provide will be subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPP). We will keep your information confidential to the maximum extent possible. Please direct any inquiries about FOIPP to the Information Policy and Privacy Branch at 1 800 663-7867.

The information in your Report of Natural Resource Violation will be reviewed and you may be contacted for further details. Where warranted, the matter will be investigated and appropriate action will be taken. If the ministry does not have jurisdiction over the matter, your Report of Natural Resource Violation will be forwarded to the appropriate agency. If there are no reasonable grounds to believe a contravention has occurred or if the matter is not considered to be significant, is not a threat to public safety or is not having a detrimental impact on the environment or on others, an investigation may not be initiated.

If you have any questions, please contact the nearest FrontCounter BC Office.
