Both Tolko Industries Ltd. (High Level Lumber Division)
and Norbord Inc. believe that public involvement
will benefit all levels of planning and operations. The Companies
- Public input needs to be economically, ecologically,
and socially balanced.
- The public involvement process should be flexible
and open to change as values change.
- The longer the term of a project, the more effort
that will be required to seek and resolve public input.
Our companies encourage stakeholder involvement
in the development of all aspects of our operations. These aspects
can include (but is not limited to) the development of our Detailed
Forest Management Plan (DFMP), Sustainable Forest Management (SFM)
Plan, General Development Plan (GDP), and Forest Harvest Plan (FHP).
To encourage stakeholder involvement, our companies
have developed and implemented a diverse Public Involvement Plan
(PIP). Some of the components of this PIP include Open Houses,
newspaper and radio announcements, as well as ongoing contact
with Aboriginal groups, trappers, and other industrial and non-industrial
stakeholders in our area.
Our companies also actively participate in the Public Advisory Committee
