    Description

    Log exports have been restricted in British Columbia for over 100 years. The intent of the restriction is to use the timber in British Columbia to encourage development of forest industry, employment, and well-being in the Province. Logs have been exempted from the within-Province manufacturing rule at various times, in varying amounts, for different reasons, and by changing procedures. Although policy clearly restricts log exports, the effects are not simple. The timber industry benefits from both financial returns due to exporting and a restricted log market, while policy changes and implementation have worked to enhance the economic welfare of the Province. Realizing the intent to maintain Provincial well-being is perhaps the key to understanding the endurance of restrictive British Columbia forest policy over time and its dynamics.
