Welcome to the West Coast Region

Ancient Cedars on Haida Gwaii  / Queen Charlotte Islands photo by Brian EcclesFor the first time since its inception in the 1920's, the forest region on the coast, now known as the Coast Forest Region, completely manages BC coastal forests.

Covering a total of 16.5 million hectares, the Coast Forest Region is bounded to the east by the Coast Mountain and Cascade Ranges, the Washington US Border to the south, Alaska US border to the north, and the islands to the west which include Queen Charlotte Islands and Vancouver Islands.

The Coast Regional Office is located in Nanaimo, and this centre is responsible for field services at the regional level. Staff provide advice, assistance, and expertise on forest management. They also provide stewardship and tenure administration to the public, industry and other agencies. There are eight district offices within the region which provide local services for their respective communities. The responsibilities of district staff include reviewing and approving forest operations, and enforcing compliance with various forest legislation including the Forest Practices Code and Forest and Range Stewardship Act.
