The goals of the FBCWA are:
To promote excellence in sustainable forest management through the application of sound and innovative practices.
To improve the economical viability of small scale forestry in constantly changing economies by promoting improved markets for conventional forest products, product diversification and expansion into milling and value added manufacturing.
To achieve steady and continuous growth in the number of small, area based tenures throughout the province. The FBCWA supports the amalgamation of private and crown forests lands in an effort to bring more lands into forest production and improve management, providing the rights associated with private land ownership are upheld.
To build a stronger, more effective FBCWA.
To provide extension services, support training and skills upgrading for members.
To promote employment and economic stability for our members and the communities in which they live and work.
To further the goals and objectives of the Federation by building mutually beneficial relationships with academia, the public, stakeholders, business and government.
To raise the profile and understanding about woodlots amongst the public and natural resource sectors; provincially, nationally and internationally.
To help shape the future of forestry and forest management in British Columbia by effectively representing the membership on boards, commissions and committees.
