What is the FPA?

The FPA is administered by an independent board with expertise in governance, forestry, natural resource management, conservation and local government. The board includes the Chief Forest Practices Officer, who is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the forest practices system.

Key stakeholders are represented on the Forest Practices Advisory Council, which advises the FPA on the operation of the forest practices system.

The FPA has a team of 180 Forest Practices Officers, employed throughout the public and private sectors, who prepare, certify and supervise forest practices plans.

The FPA is headed by the Chief Forest Practices Officer and has a staff of around 25 people with a range of expertise including scientists, advisors, compliance officers and administrative staff.
