Cheakamus Community Forest Carbon Project - Transitioned to BCCR(ID: 103000000009792)
British Columbia Government
The Cheakamus Community Forest Carbon Project is situated on a 33,018 hectare community forest tenure around Whistler, on the traditional territories of the Squamish Nation and Lil’wat Nation - a landscape enjoyed by millions of locals, British Columbians, and international visitors each year. The project retains more carbon in the forests, by increasing protected areas and using lower impact harvest techniques. Carbon offsets enable implementation of an Ecosystem Based Management plan, overcoming barriers to environmental and economic sustainability. The project ensures long-term forestry jobs while bolstering additional uses of the forest alongside harvest – such as tourism, traditional practices, and protected habitats for important species. Transitioned to BC Carbon Registry. This project has been grandfathered under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act and may have further issuances for the period after December 31, 2015.
