Special Projects Overview
The Forest Practices Board is British Columbia’s independent forestry watchdog. On behalf of the public, it monitors and oversees forest and range practices on public land, as well as government’s enforcement of the Forest and Range Practices Act. These activities include special investigations and special reports on important forestry and range issues.
A special investigation is conducted by the Board to deal with matters of significant public interest that cannot be adequately addressed through a complaint investigation or an audit.
A special report is issued by the Board if it wishes to comment publicly on a matter or if it is determined that an in-depth special investigation is not necessary.
