The AFA is calling on the BC government to implement a series of policy changes to protect BC’s last remaining old-growth forests and ensure a sustainable, value-added, second-growth forest industry including:

  • A comprehensive, science-based plan to protect old-growth forests
  • Financial support for sustainable economic development and diversification of First Nations communities, known as “conservation financing,” while supporting First Nations land use plans
  • Facilitate sustainable logging of second-growth forests, which now constitute the majority of forest lands in southern BC
  • End the export of BC raw logs to foreign mills in order to ensure a guaranteed log supply for BC mills and value-added processing facilities.
  •  Implement incentives for the retooling and development of BC mills and value-added facilities to handle second-growth logs
