A Message from Mike Apsey


Hello.  As President of the BC Forest Service Centenary Society and a past Deputy Minister of Forests, I welcome you to our BCFS100 website.  This site is the first of many projects underway to identify, collect and display information about the proud history of the BC Forest Service as it reaches its 100th year in 2012.

I encourage you to explore this website and to become an active participant by submitting your own stories, photos, biographies and nominations for collections.  Guidelines are available to help you with your submissions.

This website is one of the keys you can use to find out about events that are planned before and during the centenary year in 2012.  If you want to become more involved please consider becoming a member of the SocietyMemberships are only a one-time fee of $20.12 and provide a way for you to demonstrate your support for our many projects and events.

More than anything, the BC Forest Service has always demonstrated how a dedicated group of people can achieve great things through good times and bad.  It's why the BC Forest Service has endured for a century and is the foundation for its place in the future.

Enjoy your journey back in time to the beginnings of the BC Forest Service and its evolution through the decades.
