Biodiversity objectives background
Biodiversity Objectives – Background

  • A Group called the Landscape Objective Working Group was established in the Fall of 2002.

  • It is made up of representatives from Ministry of Sustainable Resource Management and some locally based Forest Companies.

  • There has been periodic meetings with MOF and WLAP, a forum with Ecologists and Researchers and a couple of background presentations to the CNRCs.

  • The objectives will become legal objectives through the Forest and Range Practice Act or the Land Act and forest licensees will have to address them in their Forest Stewardship Plans or Forest Development Plans.
