Community Forests are an investment into the community – featuring the Lower North Thompson Community Forest

The Lower North Thompson Community Forest purchased land to create the Barriere Industrial Park in 2017. In 2018 the CF invested $799,844 in land development, equipment and infrastructure as means to diversify and drive economic development. Investment included water and three-phase power development at the mill site, construction of a mill and modular kiln, and purchase of skid steer loader and firewood processor.

“Together these activities improve our ability to fully utilize the logs from the community forest while creating new opportunities for employment, innovation, and revenue generation.”  –LNTCFS website
