First Nation & Mètis
Community Involvement


The Ontario Forest Management Planning Manual describes the procedure for First Nation and Mètis Community involvement in Section 8.0 (page D-46). Three sections pertaining to the Annual Work Schedule, Prescribed Burning, and Aerial Herbicides are outlined below.
Annual Work Schedule, Section 8.2.1 (pg D-46):
Following completion of the draft AWS, and no later than the date of submission of the draft AWS to MNRF (normally submitted on January 1st annually), the sustainable forest licensee will provide each First Nation and 
Mètis community a copy of the draft AWS and invite the community to participate in a meeting to discuss the draft AWS. Communities will have 30 days to review and provide comments and, if the community expresses an interest, participate in a meeting. The sustainable forest licensee may invite the MNRF to attend the meeting(s). The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the operations with First Nation and Mètis communities and provide communities the opportunity to identify any updated First Nation and Mètis values that are of importance to the First Nation and Mètis communities and that may be affected by the forest operations, including the application of herbicides (e.g., ground application, aerial application).
