Introducing Ecosystem Based Management in the Sunshine Coast Community Forest
Welcome to the
Sunshine Coast Community Forest
Our mission is to create a legacy for our citizens by being exceptional stewards of our forest
by balancing the environmental, economic & social aspirations of the community
What is the Sunshine Coast Community Forest?
an agreement to manage timber harvesting under jurisdiction of the shíshálh Nation and the Province of BC
3 areas totalling 10,800 hectares, the Community Forest accounts for 1.2% of logging on the Sunshine Coast
4,300 hectares or 40% of the Community Forest is reserved by legal or voluntary measures to minimize the ecological footprint of operations
The Legacy Fund is one of the ways the Community Forest gives back to its community.
It's a program that issues grants to eligible groups for projects that will offer lasting benefit to the Lower Sunshine Coast community.
