The Ontario provincial government recently released a discussion paper, entitled Ontario’s Forests, Ontario’s Future, that will guide both online public comment and a series of consultations that begin in September.

“This review of our tenure and pricing system -which determines how companies get and pay for wood in this province -is an important step toward building a bright future for ourselves in forestry. I believe we can create a fertile environment for new and emerging opportunities for industry while, at the same time, preserving the best of our current system,” says Michael Gravelle, Minister of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry. A series of stakeholder and public consultations have been scheduled throughout the province in September and October.

Additional information on the tenure review is available at ontario.ca/foresttenure.
