BC Timber Sales is a semi-autonomous program within the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations with financial and operational independence. BC Timber Sales has an integral role in supporting the Forest Sector Strategy in the BC Jobs Plan. It also supports the Ministry’s Four Key Pillars, its Goal of “Productive, thriving natural resource sector and resilient communities”, and its Objective of “Economic benefits of natural resource development are optimized.”
BC Timber Sales provides these benefits by planning, developing, and selling through auction, a substantial and representative portion of the Province’s annual available timber volume. The bid prices received from auctioned timber support the Market Pricing System (MPS) in setting stumpage rates for coastal and interior operating areas of the province. The costs incurred by BC Timber Sales also provide data for the Tenure Obligation Adjustments, contributing to another integral part of the MPS.
The goal of BCTS is to provide credible representative price and cost benchmark data for the Market Pricing System (MPS) through auctions of public timber. BCTS has three objectives supporting its goal.
1) Sell its full BCTS allowable apportionment over the business cycle, consistent with safe practices and sustainable forest management.
2) Generate net direct revenue and indirect provincial government revenue over the business cycle.
3) Pursue continuous business improvement within BCTS, across government, and with third party partners and customers.

The Forest Technologist is part of a multi-disciplinary field team of technicians and professionals and performs a wide variety of technical and operational duties to support the planning, engineering, layout, auction, harvest and reforestation activities over a large geographic area.
