Connection to Land

Fort Nelson First Nation Land Management Framework (LMF)

Our biomass energy partners, the Fort Nelson First Nation, are developing a 20-year forestry plan to not only supply fibre for biomass energy production, but also to provide guidance for resource development, protection, and land use within their traditional territory. This framework is being developed by the Land Management team of the Fort Nelson First Nation, Fort Nelson community members, and in partnership with external ecologists and wildlife specialists. The LMF focuses on the protection of:

  • traditional use areas and values;
  • riparian values;
  • wildlife and habitat values, including caribou and moose protection; 
  • trees by age class, including old forest, and natural young forest; and
  • landscape connectivity.
