We are part of the British Columbia Community Forest Association network of rural community-based organizations engaged in community forest management. Established in 2009, our community forest agreement grants the McLeod Lake Mackenzie Community Forest Limited Partnership the right to harvest
The McLeod Lake Mackenzie Community Forest will be a professional and profitable business and will operate within a framework of sound environmental stewardship and community values.
The mission of the McLeod Lake Mackenzie Community Forest Corporation is to use the principles of environmental, economic, social and cultural stewardship and sustainability in the management of the community forest for the benefit of the people of the communities

Measuring the benefits of community forestry
April 2017: BCCFA releases the Community Forest Indicators Survey Report for 2016
Profitability for a community forest is measured by different metrics than used by industry.
“The Indicators Survey shows the spectrum of what community forests can accomplish. Profitability for a community forest is measured by different metrics than used by industry. While profitability for a community forest can be measured in cash, no less important are more intangible benefits such as the long-term health and sustainability of our forest; recreation, employment and development opportunities for community members and harmony with all the other users of the forest.”
