April 5, 2012 at 1:42 am

Through the efforts of consultation between Klahoose First Nation and Cortes Island community a new relationship has been made for forestry interests on Cortes Island. The Cortes Community Forestry Cooperative and Klahoose First Nation have agreed today to partner up in a groundbreaking agreement that will solidify a forest management plan on crown lands. The board of directors for both groups recently met to organize the next step to make this partnership a reality. The two groups agree to join together to create a new limited partnership called ‘Cortes Forestry General Partnership’.

I am very happy with the efforts of the Cortes Community and the hard work by councilor Kathy Francis and Klahoose First Nation for making a great opportunity for the Island and beyond.”, says Chief James Delorme.

The newly formed group will be working on goal-setting for implementing a forest management plan in the weeks ahead.
