(Canfor) to Peak Fort Nelson Properties Ltd. (Peak Renewables). The deadline to provide input is Feb. 19, 2021.

RFL A17007 is administered within the Fort Nelson Timber Supply Area and has an allowable annual cut of 553,716 cubic meters per year (m3/yr).

The Minister wants to hear from the public regarding proposed tenure agreement dispositions. Your comments can express support or concerns, or suggest conditions to protect the public’s interest that could be placed on the approval of a proposed disposition. Comments can be submitted online.
