Forest Manager

Chris Law RFT is the current forestry manager and has been the manager of the community forest for the past five years. Shawn Flynn and Dave McBride of Greenmax Resources managed the community forest from 2011 to 2013.

In January 2014, Greenmax informed the corporation it would not be seeking renewal of the Manager’s contract deciding instead, to redirect its energy toward managing its own forest tenures. The Corporation sought proposals from individuals and firms to fulfill the role as Manager and after a selection process, offered the contract to Chris Law, of Sproat Lake Forestry Services Ltd. The Board is looking forward to working with Chris who began transitioning into the position in April.

The Alberni Valley Community Forest Corporation wishes to thank Shawn and Dave for their hard work and wisdom and acknowledges their contribution towards a very successful beginning in the operation of a Community Forest that balances community values with practicable resource management. The Board is optimistic about the future of the Alberni Valley Community Forest and its continued success.

To reach Chris Law, please call 250-731-7377 or email: The office is located in the Alberni Valley Regional Airport building (7500 Airport Road).
