The Teal-Jones Group (Teal) maintains two public advisory groups:
- Fraser Public Advisory Group for the Fraser portion of the DFA (Forest License A19201 and Timber License T0822 located within the Fraser Timber Supply Area)
- Southwest Island Public Advisory Group for the Honeymoon Bay portion of the Defined Forest Area (DFA) (Tree Farm License (TFL ) 46)
The purpose of the Public Advisory Groups (PAGs) is to assist Teal with the Sustainable Forest Management Plan, including: identifying local level values, objectives, indicators, and targets, developing and assessing related strategies within the DFA, reviewing the plan periodically, designing appropriate monitoring programs to recommend improvements, and discussing/resolving issues which arise relevant to the plan.
The PAGs are guided by Terms of Reference which are designed to define and guide the process of public participation in the development and maintenance of Teal’s Sustainable Forest Management Plan. For more information see the Public Advisory Group Terms of Reference.
