Operating Area

The NWIPC operating area encompasses northwest BC from the Rocky Mountains of Valemount, west to the Pacific Ocean including Haida Gwaii, and north of Quesnel to the Yukon border. The area comprises a total land base of 37,642,600 hectares. In addition to the Crown Lands of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource & Rural Development and the Ministry of Transport & Infrastructure, it includes Nisga'a Nation and First Nations traditional territory, four regional districts; one unincorporated region; sixteen incorporated municipalities; and over 100 Parks/Protected areas; and includes areas managed by forest licensees, and agriculture operations.
