Name of creator
The Vancouver Forest District was established in 1913 under the Forest Act, 1912. It 1918 the Island Forest District was added to it.
In 1978, the Vancouver Forest District was renamed the Vancouver Forest Region, however its boundaries remained the same. Between 1978 and 1981, the Region was reorganized to comprise of the following smaller Forest Districts: Chilliwack, Maple Ridge, Squamish, Sechelt, Powell River, Duncan, Port Alberni, Campbell River and Port McNeill. These areas were based on the previous Ranger Districts.
Scope and content
This series consists of Vancouver Forest District operational records, 1912-1979. The series has been arranged into 11 sub-series: timber sale sketches; special use permit sketches; park use permit letter and sketches for Mount Seymour; scaling and royalty records including timber leases, timer licenses, fee ledgers, records of accounts, crown grants, and other material; statistical graphs; logging inspection legers for various ranger districts; pole and piling return from Anton Pole and Lumber Co.; payroll accounts of Fraser River Repair Station; a variety of disbursement ledgers; scaling and royalty deposit accounts; and general accounts under section 113 of the Forest Act.
Timber sale sketches contain X and A files, in three colour spirit duplication. These show tenure boundaries, physical features, some contour lines and cultural features such as roads and railways and are in file number order. Special use permit and park use permit sketches are similar to the timber sale sketches.
