Manitoba's Crown Timber Pricing

Crown timber harvested in Manitoba is measured in cubic metres (m³). For each cubic metre of timber harvested, specific dues and charges must be paid. Commercial users must pay three specific charges as per The Forest Act:

  • Crown Timber Dues
  • Forest Renewal Charge (FRC)
  • Fire Protection Charge (FPC) - The Fire Protection Charge ($0.17/m³) is collected to offset the firefighting/prevention costs the province undertakes to protect forest resources.  

Market Based Timber Pricing

Timber dues are set monthly based on the previous month average commodity reference prices in accordance with Manitoba's Timber Dues Tables.

The timber pricing system sets dues by four timber classes, each associated with a forest  product commodity:
