Map of tenure evolution on Haida Gwaii

The “map of tenure evolution on Haida Gwaii” depicts the evolution of forest tenures on Haida Gwaii since the Bill 28 Forest Revitalization Act of 2003.  The area for a potential Community Forest proposed by government is depicted in red on map 5 of the progression and you can see how the boundaries are adjacent to other tenures and private lands.

A group of satellite images with boundaries of the proposed community forest and adjacent tenure boundaries, as well as recent harvesting, proposed BCTS blocks and Land Use Objectives Order reserves.  The images reflect the maps provided by government and contain some errors in boundaries that need to be corrected by government on their source maps. As well, these maps are static and not a reflection of the current state of forestry-related operations within the CFA offer areas.
