Welcome to SIFCO!
Our goal is to be part of creating a healthy and vibrant local community, a community built on respect for one another and respect for a healthy, fully functioning ecosystem.
Our planning process emphasizes long-term economic, social, and environmental stability. A diversity of values are considered in our planning development.
In January 2008 SIFCo secured a Probationary Community Forest Agreement (PCFA) in the Central Slocan Valley. In the winter of 2012 we signed a 25-year Community Forest Agreement (CFA) with the Province of British-Columbia. This provides our community with the opportunity to manage, sustain, and enjoy the benefits from local forest resources. SIFCo is creating a socially responsible mechanism for including valley residents in planning for forest uses. Keeping jobs and profits local, and supporting local entrepreneurs with opportunities and a variety of forest-based raw materials, are integral components of our management plan.
