A deal was signed to salvage fire-damaged timber, which will benefit the Ktunaxa/Kinbasket Tribal Council (KKTC).
Within the past two months, the province signed agreements with the Shuswap Nation Tribal Council, the Little Shuswap Indian Band and the Westbank First Nation to salvage more than 1.1 million cubic metres of burnt timber.
Under the agreement, the KKTC will be invited to apply for two non-replaceable forest licences totalling 255,000 cubic metres of timber damaged in this summer’s wildfires in the Cranbrook and Invermere timber supply areas. The salvage will occur on the sites of the Magnesite, Plumbob, Ram/Storm, Cummings and Lamb fires.
