The Mid Island Forest Lands Advisory Group (MIFLAG) is an independent body providing organized and regular input to the development, implementation, and ongoing improvement of Western Forest Products’ (WFP) Sustainable Forest Management Plan (SFMP) at the Mid Island Forest Operation.

Our Mission

To represent the values of our communities, our stakeholder groups, and ourselves to ensure Sustainable Forest Management practices on the Defined Forest Area. This is accomplished by: developing, tracking, discussing and continually improving a set of Indicators and Targets related to these values; and by having an ongoing dialogue with WFP representatives to ensure that the environment of the Defined Forest Area, and the communities which rely on them, are sustained.
