Haida Gwaii Timber Supply Area

The Haida Gwaii timber supply area (TSA), formerly known as the Queen Charlotte TSA, lies entirely within Haida Gwaii, a group of about 150 islands approximately 90 kilometres west of British Columbia’s north coast.  Haida Gwaii communities include Masset, Old Masset, Port Clements, Skidegate, Queen Charlotte City and Sandspit.

The TSA covers roughly 308,000 hectares of land, and is administered by the Haida Gwaii Natural Resource District. 

The Haida Gwaii TSA’s current allowable annual cut (AAC) is 512,000 cubic metres, effective September 20, 2012. 

The Haida Gwaii Management Council (HGMC) is currently undertaking a timber supply review leading up to its determination of an AAC for all of Haida Gwaii.  The HGMC’s determination is a joint decision by the Haida Nation and British Columbia.  Related documents can be found on the HGMC website.  http://www.haidagwaiimanagementcouncil.ca/2019/11/15/public-review-period-documents/

After the HGMC determines an AAC for all of Haida Gwaii, the chief forester must determine AACs for the TSA and TFLs on Haida Gwaii.  At this time, comments on the HGMC timber supply review should go to the addresses provided in the HGMC public discussion paper.
