Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program - Innovative
FIA Project 2245009

    Economic impact modeling in the Morice and Lakes IFPA region
 
Project lead: Tweedsmuir Forest Ltd.
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program - Innovative
Description:
The primary purpose of the project is to investigate potential economic impacts relating to shocks or changes to the forestry, agriculture, and tourism and other key sectors in this region. Models will be developed that have the ability to examine regional economic impacts of changes in resource management and institutional and environmental regulations. Specifically, this part of the project will focus on employment and household income effects in the region and the rest of the province.
This study will take advantage of work already completed in Burns Lake by the Canadian Forest Service socio-economic research group at the Northern Forestry Centre and will expand to a selected number of Morice and Lakes communities.
