$3 million in grants have been allocated throughout the province by the Forest Enhancement Society of BC.

According to a news release, the grants will support jobs in the forestry sector and increase the utilization of wood fibre that would be burned to slash.

Among the recipients is the Village of Fraser Lake who received $101,652 for the Fraser Lake Community Forest to transport uneconomic residual waste fibre to the Pinnacle Pellet plant in Burns Lake.
