Annual Work Schedule, Section 8.2.1 (pg D-31):

By January 1 of each year the sustainable forest licensee will provide each First Nation and M
ètis community with a copy of the AWS (i.e. digital inforamtion or hard copy information) and invite the First Nation and Mètis community to participate in a meeting to discuss the AWS.  The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the planned operations with First Nation and Mètis communities and provide the community the opportunity to identify and new 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.  The MNRF will attend the meeting(s) upon request by the sustainable forest licensee or the First Nation and Mètis community.

Following the reciept of the AWS from the sustainable forest licensee, the First Nation and Mètis communities will have 60-days to provide comments to the sustainable forest licensee related to the planned operation in the AWS.
