Province receives Forestry Commission discussion paper

The Forestry Commission has presented government with a discussion paper about a plan for developing forest policy to carry Prince Edward Island into the future. 

The discussion paper, Towards A New Forest Policy, contains 13 key topics related to forestry, including the future of a legislative framework, sustainability of biomass supply, and increasing readiness for extreme weather.

“The paper is the commission’s first step in a public engagement process. It kicks off a timely public dialogue on our forest and I look forward to receiving this feedback from the public, industry and the commission.”

- Environment, Energy and Climate Action Minister Steven Myers

A public survey will be available soon and community engagement meetings will take place across PEI this summer.

Further information about these meetings will follow later.
