Nova Scotia Primary Forest Products Marketing Board

Other forms of name:
Nova Scotia Pulpwood Marketing Board

The Nova Scotia Pulpwood Marketing Board was established by statute in 1972 to register associations as bargaining agents for producers or buyers of pulpwood and to investigate all matters relating to the marketing of pulpwood. Subsequent legislation in 1986 broadened the mandate of the board and changed its name to Nova Scotia Primary Forest Products Marketing Board. The board organizes, funds and registers bargaining agents; provides for the resolution of bargaining disputes; facilitates and supports the continued development of the forest resources held by private wood lot owners; and enables private woodlot owners to have a fair share of the available market for primary forest products and receive a reasonable return for primary forest products sold.

Notes: Authority record based on Statutes of Nova Scotia: 1972 c. 15, 1986 c. 52.
