Prince Edward Island’s forestry commission has presented government with a discussion paper about a plan for developing forest policy to carry P.E.I. 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,” said Environment, Energy and Climate Action Minister Steven Myers.

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