What is BC Timber Sales (BCTS)?

BC Timber Sales is a semi-autonomous program within the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. It was established in 2003, and has financial and operational independence from the Ministry.

BCTS represents the interests of the provincial government in timber harvesting operations. It does this by managing the sales of forest parcels (to other organizations) where logging operations may take place, and thereby generates revenue for the province.
