The Forest Practices Board to audit Lakeside Pacific Forest Products

11 October, 23:50
The Forest Practices Board will examine the activities of Lakeside Pacific Forest Products Ltd. on forest licence A19207, near Harrison Lake, Canada, during the week of October 16, 2017.

Auditors will examine whether harvesting, roads, silviculture, fire protection and associated planning, carried out between October 2015 and October 2017, met the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act.

Lakeside’s forestry operations are located on the east and west sides of Harrison Lake, about 25 kilometres north of Harrison Hot Springs, in the Chilliwack Resource District. This summer, two wildfires occurred on the east side of Harrison Lake. The fires disrupted operations but Lakeside’s crews are now back at work.

The Forest Practices Board is B.C.’s independent watchdog for sound forest and range practices, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the public and government.
