Posted by James Hargrave, Oceans Canada Forestry, Forestry and Parks, on November 29, 2018 10:00:30As a first-time contributor, I want to thank the Forestry Program Manager and his team for all their hard work on this.
It has been a very challenging few months, but I’m looking forward to working with them to bring the best possible experience to the Forestry program for future generations.
The Forestry Program is a part of the Natural Resources and Environment Act and supports forestry projects in Northern Ontario.
We want to provide this new technology and the opportunity to work with the best in the world to make sure it can be used to benefit people, the environment and the economy.
We are working with the Forestry Program Manager, the Forest Service, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Forestry Board and the Ontario Forestry Products Association to ensure that the benefits of this innovative technology are well-recognized, and the program is sustainable.
This project is a continuation of work the Forestry Department has been doing for many years, and it will be a part to the new province of Ontario, which was created on October 1st, 2018.
The Forestry program provides support to local landowners and forestry companies across the province to create new jobs and grow their businesses.
Forestries in the province provide a wide range of forestry services and products, from hand-cut timber, wood-bearing boards and planks, to trees, fences, mulch and compost.
The Forest Service of Ontario supports the Forestry Industry Development Fund (FIDF), a provincial program that provides support for the creation of a large number of new forestry projects throughout the province.
Our team is committed to working in partnership with industry partners to create a strong, diversified portfolio of new projects and support the growth of the forestry industry in Northern Canada.
It is a significant undertaking for the Forestry Division, and we look forward to making this project a success for everyone involved.
Thank you for your time, James Hargrail, O.R. Forestry, OCEP, Forest Products, ODFB, Forestry Commissioner.
