Scope and content
The series consists of timber licence files from the Kamloops Forest District of the Ministry of Forests. The licences provided the licensee with the right to harvest timber from a specific area. These files document the management of timber licences and include records relating to the issuance, administration and monitoring of the licence. The records were created between 1979 and 1986.
The majority of the files consist of licence files arranged by the timber number. Each timber number begins with the letter “T.” There are two parts to each file that are arranged front to front. One part is a copy of the timber licence and the other part is administrative and operational documentation relating to the licence.
The files consist of forms, reports, correspondence and maps. The files contain a copy of the licence, maps of the area that will be logged, ministry approvals, operating plans, as well as a wide variety of correspondence with the licensee
The records have been classified as 19580-20 in the Forest ORCS. The ministry also applied a classification number of 850-16 to the files.

Terms governing use, reproduction, and publication
A file list is available. According to the Forests Operational Classification System, the ministry created T number registers (ORCS 19580-07). These registers have not been transferred to the archives. Researchers are therefore advised to contact the ministry to view these registers in order to identify specific files by name of applicant and/or forestry district.
