The Central Westcoast Forest Society (CWFS) is a registered charity on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We work with a variety of partners to restore forest and stream ecosystems, conduct research and monitoring projects, and engage with the community through education and employment.


Central Westcoast Forest Society uses an ecosystem-based management approach that recognizes the connection between ecosystems and the well-being of people.



Central Westcoast Forest Society was created in November 1995, to work with local and regional communities to fix problems created by past forest practices and to find solutions to move into the future.


Who We Are

Central Westcoast Forest Society hires crews that are representative of the local regional population, from having elected officials from local communities on its board, the CWFS strives to put local stewardship into a global context.
