The Forest Enhancement Society of BC (FESBC) is now accepting funding applications from BC companies for its seventh intake round.

Applications will be accepted online through the Forest Enhancement Society Information Management System (FESIMS) until midnight October 16, 2020.

“Projects being considered for Intake 7 will be for increased utilization of wood fibre that would normally be left as waste or the rehabilitation of forests where low value or damaged areas can be cleared to then be reforested to grow healthier forests,” says Steve Kozuki, executive director for FESBC.

“These projects not only provide strong environmental benefits, they also generate much-needed economic benefits locally by creating and maintaining jobs.”

Interested applicants are encouraged to click the Applying for Funding tab for details on how to apply through the FESIMS system.
