    • A range or forest tenure holders economic interests
    • Sustainability of the provinces forest and range resource
    • Protection of the publics non-timber values
  • Actions under GAR are critical to the success of FRPA when done collaboratively and co-operatively

what else is going on
What else is going on?
  • Provincial FRPA Implementation Team ( PFIT) is going one step further

- co-ordination of government agencies for all actions under the Objectives pillar

- revisions to the GAR policy and procedures based on workshop

  • Bulletin – clarifies FSP requirements when implementing new objectives
  • FRPA is a fundamentally important piece of legislation governing the management of the forest and range resources of BC
  • Success for the GAR component depends on:
    • A common understanding of the legislation
    • A common understanding of how the GAR authorities are administered
    • The appropriate establishment of GAR authorities
    • Positive relationships that lead to a collaboration, co-operative approach
    • Partnership and information sharing with government agencies and industry, and
    • Effectiveness monitoring to make sure the need is met through time
