Natural Resource Management Project Trust Funds

The Fraser Basin Council now has administrative responsibility for several project trust funds that were previously administered by the Resources North Association (Resources North). Resources North is a BC non-profit society based in Prince George, BC that is voluntarily winding down its operations as of September 30, 2015.

About the Projects

The Fraser Basin Council is administering trust funds from the Province of BC and industry that are designated for specific resource management projects in Northern BC. These are:

  • the Muskwa-Kechika Advisory Board (for work related to the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area, a protected wilderness area)
  • implementation of the provincial Peace Northern Caribou Plan
  • a small streams study in Prince George, and
  • landslide susceptibility mapping and research projects throughout British Columbia.

Independent project committees originally set up to oversee each project will continue to determine use of the funds for completion of scientific research and other project work.

For more information, see the media release issued by Resources North on September 23.

Library of Resources

FBC expects to maintain an online collection of key resources previously published by the Resources North Association. Please check back on our site, or contact us if you are searching for a particular resource.

Premier’s BC Natural Resources Forum

The Resources North Association has previously assisted in the management of the Premier’s BC Natural Resources Forum.  The former staff of Resources North will continue to manage the event under contract and in cooperation with the C3 Alliance Corporation, working with hosts MLA Mike Morris and the Premier’s office. The next forum is scheduled for January 19-21, 2016.  For more information, visit www.bcnaturalresourcesforum.com.
