An excellent career building opportunity in professional forestry!

BC Timber Sales (BCTS) plans, develops, and sells 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 BCTS 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 MPS through auctions of public timber. BCTS has three objectives supporting its goal.

Sell the full BCTS allowable apportionment over the business cycle, consistent with safe practices and sustainable forest management.

Generate net direct revenue and indirect provincial government revenue over the business cycle.

Pursue continuous business improvement within BCTS, across government, and with third party partners and customers.
