Coast Forest Products Association makes positive contributions to public policy outcomes by offering solutions-driven strategic views that are backed by science-based facts and research.
Our relationships with government and forest stakeholders maintain both the integrity and the efficiency of British Columbia’s world-leading regulatory framework for forest management. We are also involved in policy development related to the environment, climate change, First Nations, safety, market access and taxation.
Timber Pricing: We help to maintain a balanced Market-based Pricing System (MPS) formula for stumpage so both industry and government benefit, and coastal products remain competitive in global markets.
Market Structure: We participate in the Timber Sales Advisory Committee, monitoring B.C. Timber Sales auctions so we can be sure we have a market structure that responds to market needs.
Softwood Lumber: We coordinate the coastal forest industry’s input to the federal and provincial governments with respect to implementation, compliance, monitoring, arbitration and changes to the Canada-U.S. softwood lumber agreement.
