In October, 1987 the British Columbia Ministry of Forests together with the Canadian Forestry Service commissioned Sterling Wood Group Inc. to undertake this study.
The Canada - British Columbia Forest Resource Development Agreement (FRDA) requires that: "Canada and the Province shall jointly effect an assessment of the programs with regard to the stated objectives of A Forest Sector Strategy for Canada, the provincial forest management guidelines and this Agreement." This study forms part of and contributes to the assessment.
Funding for this study has been shared by the two signatories under the Implementation, Communications and Evaluation program within FRDA.
