What Does The Board Do?

The BVCRB was first established in 1991 to complete the Bulkley Land and Resource Management Plan (LRMP), widely regarded as one of British Columbia’s most successful land-use plans. Today, the Board continues to play an important role by advising government on resource management, monitoring resource management plans on crown lands, acting as the vehicle for public input on issues arising from the Land and Resource Management Plan, and reviewing any proposed changes to the Plan.

What Are Some Current Issues Being Considered By The Board

  • Wildlife Habitat Management Area (WHMA) land act designations

  • Forestry and Carbon in BC
  • Reiseter Special Management Zone, VQO complaints, log hauling traffic, Opportunities to be Heard
  • Management of Resources in the Face of LNG Pipeline Expansion: How will pipeline corridors affect wildlife habitat, water quality, and other resources.

Who Is On The Board?

The BVCRB is comprised of 12 volunteers representing the full range of value perspectives in the community. Board members typically serve 1 or more 3 year terms, and this rotation means there are several openings on the board each year.
