Land Based Investment Strategy


The framework describes the annual Land Based Investment Strategy (LBIS) planning and delivery cycle and outlines roles and responsibilities. 


Eligible investment categories and priorities are determined annually using strategic direction from the following sources:

  • Service plan goals and objectives
  • Regional and provincial work plans

Some of the existing activities and projects may have long-term strategies that identify priority work to be completed over a number of years. Projects should also meet the following government commitments:

  • Remediate priority fish passage crossings
  • Plant at least 20 million trees annually for the next 15 years on MPB and wildfire impacted lands
  • Improving mid-term timber supplies through investments in incremental silviculture and tree improvement.
  • Improve provincial forest inventories consistent with the 10 year inventory strategic plan
  • Improve fish and wildlife inventories to ensure sustainable use of these resources
  • Prevent new and reduce existing invasive plant impacts on forest and range resources to levels that are environmentally and economically acceptable
  • Protect the British Columbia's international trade through the eradication of Gypsy Moth
  • Each investment category must consider how climate change has affected, or will affect, resource values and their associated goals, objectives and targets
