Public Consultation: Proposed Conservancies in Clayoquot Sound

Posted: Mar 18, 2024   |   By: Communications

In collaboration with the Ahousaht and Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations, the Province of British Columbia has announced a proposed land use change in Clayoquot Sound to establish 77,000 hectares of new conservancies under the Park Act.⁠

This is part of long-term planning for the area, which is currently authorized for commercial forestry as part of Tree Farm Licence (TFL) 54 – the only TFL in Clayoquot Sound.

If approved, this would mean that nearly 60% of the current area of the TFL would be conserved, with 55,000 hectares remaining within forest tenures.

A key component of the proposal is collecting public feedback to help inform the decision-making process. The public is encouraged to fill out the survey by April 10, 2024, by following this link.
