Community Forests Application Process

Before creating an opportunity for a Community Forest Agreement, the Crown may consider a number of factors, including:

  • the availability of suitable Allowable Annual Cut (AAC) and landbase(s) within certain boundaries (e.g. a Timber Supply Area),

  • the anticipated level of local support for the opportunity; and,

  • the potential to address local land use issues.

  • Application Requirements (PDF document)

    (Although the application requirements included here are quite thorough, it is strongly suggested that applicants meet with the appropriate regional contact to go over the requirements in detail prior to starting their application)
