Forest Management Plan Approval Process

CLOSED: This engagement has concluded.


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.

Provide Your Feedback

Manitoba’s 20-Year Forest Management Plan Guideline has been revised to accommodate the requirements of The Environment Act. Manitobans are invited to review and provide feedback on the Draft 20-Year Forest Management Plan Guideline. Feedback can be submitted to EABDirector@gov.mb.ca until June 4, 2021.

This information is available in an alternate format upon request, please contact EABDirector@gov.mb.ca for additional information.

    In May 2020, the Clean Environment Commission submitted a report to the Minister of Conservation and Climate in support of the development of an integrated single-track review and approval process for Forest Management Plans.

    Public feedback was sought on the recommendations through an online survey from September 25 to November 9, 2020. In addition to the survey, the Manitoba government held two public webinars on September 9 and 17, 2020. The webinars were hosted by the CEC to provide further opportunity to the public to understand details on the report and solicit feedback.

    We would like to thank individuals, stakeholders and communities for providing feedback. Input has been summarized in a What We Heard Report.
