The Cascade Lower Canyon Community Forest (CLCCF) is located around Hope, British Columbia, Canada. It is a three-way partnership between the District of Hope, the Yale First Nation and the Fraser Valley Regional District. The operation is based on a 25 year replaceable Community Forest Agreement issued by the BC Ministry of Forests, with their local office being at the Chilliwack Forest District. The CLCCF is also a member of the BC Community Forest Association, which represents the interests of more than 50 community forests throughout British Columbia.
From 2013 to 2015, log production and most aspects of tenure management were performed by Tolko Industries under a tenure management agreement. Their responsibilities included managing the logging, reforestation (silviculture), compensating CLCCF for the logs produced and managing other ongoing forestry aspects. This tenure management agreement expired on March 31, 2016, so the CLCCF is currently considering different options going forward.
Land Use Values
Under the Community Forest Agreement, the CLCCF manages for both timber and non-timber values on the land base. This includes consideration for values such as logging, revenue, employment, First Nations, forest recreation, visual resources, fish and wildlife and water quality as well as archaeological, historical and spiritual values.
