Firewood Permit Sales

Firewood permit sales are being temporarily suspended through this week as we look to make improvements to the online process.  Permits are expected to be available for sale by the end of the week in time for weekend firewood harvesting.

We have received many comments about our new firewood permitting process.  The payment process is secure for use with your credit card.

If you have completed all the forms correctly using a valid credit card, you should receive two emails within a minute of completing the process.  One email will be from Island Timberlands with your permit, the firewood area map, and our rules for harvesting firewood.  Another email will be from PayPal indicating the transaction was successful and you've paid $20 for your permit.  If you do not receive both emails, it is very likely the transaction was not successful.  In this scenario, we suggest  registering with PayPal if you were unsuccessful using your credit card as a guest of PayPal.  If you have a PayPal account and the payment was unsuccessful, try a different credit card.

  1. If the online firewood permit sales aren't fixed by the weekend, how do we go about obtaining a permit? This would be for Northwest Bay. Thanks.

  3. If the online system isn't up and running by the weekend, can people still get access to cut firewood?

  4. Firewood sales for the Port Alberni and Shawnigan areas are available at the Tourist Info Centers in those communities.

    The website will be turned on Friday evening for permit sales.
    Any permits previously purchased for firewood cutting for October 3 and 4 will be honored as normal.

  8. If this happens to you it means you have not completed the purchasing process correctly through PayPal. We suggest trying again with a different credit card. Ensure you have cleared cookies off your computer.
