Forest Management Plan Approval Process

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The sustainability of Manitoba’s forests, the communities and wildlife around them is paramount. In December 2019, the Minister of Conservation and Climate requested that the Clean Environment Commission conduct a review of Manitoba’s existing two track forest management plan approval process and develop recommendations for a single approval process that would meet the requirements of The Environment Act and The Forest Act.

Manitoba is committed to hearing from individuals, stakeholders and communities in response to the Clean Environment Commission’s Report on the Forest Management Plan Approval Process.

Provide your feedback by November 9, 2020. The feedback provided through this survey will be considered as government works to reduce duplication and streamline the forest management plan approval process.

Manitoba does not consider this survey (and responses) to be a component of the Duty to Consult with Indigenous communities on specific forest management plans and the proposed activities within those plans. Manitoba welcomes responses from all citizens to this survey, including Indigenous individuals. Manitoba remains committed to meaningful and respectful Crown-Indigenous Consultation with Indigenous communities.

Public Webinars
Informational webinars for the public were held by the Clean Environment Commission on September 9 and 17, 2020.
