The McBride Community Forest (MCFC) is a corporation wholly owned by the Village of McBride. It was set up to manage the community forest tenure that was offered to the village in 2002.
The Community Forest license grants MCFC exclusive rights to harvest Crown timber from approximately 60,000 ha surrounding the community of McBride. The Community Forest is intended to give the community management control over the forest directly surrounding the community in order to manage it for all values of importance to the community – environment, water, recreation, visuals, wildlife etc. It also offers an opportunity to stimulate economic activity and provide a monetary return back to the community.
In addition we maintain four summer recreation sites for the enjoyment of McBride residents & visitors.
