Based on observations by Mackenzie Forest District staff, First Nation Non-Replaceable Forest License (NRFL) holders were identified as a customer segment that was at risk of not meeting the expectations of the intent of the tenure agreement. The District’s service plan thus included a project that would address this risk by improving licensee understanding of the forest license tenure and other legislated requirements and obligations. This initiative was designed to alleviate the tenure holder’s general confusion about their new tenure agreement. The Ministry of Forests’ established the following objectives with regard to this initiative:

  • to improve forest licence management performance (e.g., meeting obligations and time lines, and managing liabilities);

  • to enhance forest management and business decisions (e.g., strategies, objectives); and

  • to develop a management tool for other NRFL holders.

Forestry consultants developed and facilitated workshops designed to help licensees understand forest licence obligations and liabilities. The Northern Interior Regional Executive Director in Prince George recommended that this training material should be standardized to make it accessible for other forest districts in the province.
