Public Forest Management in the Outaouais -


The Tactical Integrated Forest Management Plan (PAFIT), prepared by the Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks (MFFP), outlines the general directions that guide public forest management strategies. The Sustainable Forest Development Act (L.R.Q., c. A-18.1), effective April 1, 2013, requires that a public consultation be held regarding this plan.

The goal of this consultation is to gather comments and concerns from the public and interest groups regarding the PAFI-T. Input, therefore, must relate to strategic and tactical aspects of forest management, such as the issues and objectives involved.

Comments and concerns relating to operational aspects of forest management planning, such as silvicultural prescriptions, forestry operations locations, harvesting rights allocated by the ministry and log transport, will be requested and gathered during specific future consultations.
