The McBride Community Forest Corporation (MCFC) signed a long-term CFA on February 28, 2007.
This agreement grants MCFC exclusive rights to harvest Crown timber from approximately 60,000 ha surrounding the community of McBride. MCFC is solely owned by the Village of McBride.
Although timber will be the main economic stimulus of the community forest, using other non-timber forest products and developing alternate land use opportunities will be long-term objectives of MCFC.
The community forest was intended to serve the social, economic and environmental needs of the community. In general terms, we will be managing the forest for all of its product potential rather than just timber.

The management of the MCFC is currently lead by Blackwell and Associates with Jeff McWilliams, RPF as the main professional. He is supported by Wes Bieber, RPF.
