Fostering a healthy Gitxsan economy with community at its core

Gitxsan Forests Inc.

Our future is in the forest.


Gitxsan Forests Inc. (GFI) manages forest opportunities in the territories, including its own 387,879m³ forest tenure in the Kispiox Timber Supply Area. The holistic management of GFI’s forestry license is central to the company’s business plan and long-term sustainability.

A sawmill site was purchased in 2012 to facilitate the company’s sustainable forestry plans, including forestry, sawmilling, pellets and power. By combining these four operations, the plan creates a completely closed loop forestry operation, using all biomass extracted from Gitxsan forests – from treetop to the forest floor.

A forestry division that focuses on logging, reforestation, sustainable forest projects, wood waste exporting and forest management.
