The Forest and Range Practices Act (FRPA) and associated regulations changes the planning process for harvesting activities. Building on the present requirements for consultation with First Nations, the legislation requires that licensees write results or strategies into the Forest Stewardship Plan (FSP) to address the objectives set by government for cultural heritage resources. In order to fulfill this requirement we licensees will be considering information gathered through prior government consultations and licensee information sharing and information gathering, including Archaeological Impact Assessments, Archaeological Overview Assessments, Traditional Use Studies, research works and other sources to identify fact and site specific aboriginal interests, traditional uses and ultimately cultural heritage resources not regulated under the Heritage Conservation Act. In addition to the summarized information from consultations, other information relative to aboriginal interests, traditional uses, and cultural heritage resources will include but not be limited to: traditional use studies, resource analysis completed by Licensees, Ministry, or First Nations, First Nations Land Use Plans, etc. The information gathered will be summarized into a data base format for use as part of the FSP FN consutation process in the Kingcome TSA and other TSAs.
