about blcf

As a community-owned Community Forest, BLCF is focused on balancing social, environmental, and economic sustainability.

BLCF’s harvesting silviculture and forest management activities provide benefits for the Village of Burns Lake, First Nations partners, and for all residents of the Lakes Timber Supply Area in a sustainable manner.

The community forest extends west to Maxan Lake, north to the Augier Main Road, east to Priestly Hill, and south to the north shore of Francois Lake and is part of the Nadina Forest District.

Donations

The BLCF generously supports community initiatives and has contributed more then $2.5 million since its inception in 2000, as well as in-kind support to more than 90 organizations and projects within the community.

Thank you to our 2021/22 Sponsors. As we all know Covid 19 has affected many of the things our kids are able to do socially (the past year). We want to thank our sponsors for helping us to make our kids lives a little more normal for at least a short fraction of time. They had the opportunity to get out on the ice and work on some hockey skills with some teammates.

We really appreciate the support from local support from businesses and Industry that helped to make this year happen.

BLCOMFOR has proudly planted 1.23 million trees this spring season here in our community forest. Planting trees ensures a future for many industries around Burns Lake and helps maintain our forests integrity.
We have recently finished our planting season this past weekend! Planters from Hybrid 17 Planted all around our community forest, combined with their other camp they planted around 150,000 trees daily! J camp up at Eagle Creek Fair Grounds has around 60 planters and all but 2 are returning from previous years. Hybrid 17 has a huge return on staff annually and credits it to the culture of their company. Their future plans to continue this return is shifting the culture into a family environment where parents can plant in the spring as their income, and not only a summer job for students. Many planters this year are students, however many have stayed passed graduating university or plan too. Now that the season is done many planters are returning to their other jobs or going to plant for another company during the summer!
