Municipal Forest Reserve

The Municipality of North Cowichan is one of the few communities in North America that owns and manages forest lands for the benefit of residents. The Municipal Forest Reserve (MFR) is 5,000+ ha in size, or 25% of the land base in North Cowichan. More information on the MFR is available in this Fact Sheet.

In winter 2018, Council began hearing from citizens interested in how the MFR is managed, and in particular, the Municipality's forestry activities within the reserve. On December 19, 2018, many members of the public attended a Council meeting to share questions and comments about management of the MFR (video available here).

This page contains presentation materials from December 19, 2018 meeeting delegations and other records related to the MFR.
