This webinar from Forest Professionals British Columbia (FPBC) provides an overview of regulatory changes brought in last year and how they affect activities governed by the Forest and Range Practices Act (FRPA).
As part of an improvement initiative, the provincial government introduced changes in 2019 to FRPA with Bill 21: Forest and Range Practices Amendment Act. The changes were a response to a broad engagement campaign with the public, industry, and other interested parties. They are designed to align FRPA with new environmental and socio-economic challenges.
