Ontario Creates First Local Forest Management Corporation

June 26, 2012

Ontario has established the province's first Local Forest Management Corporation, the Nawiinginokiima Forest Management Corporation, to re-energize the forestry sector, create jobs and boost the economy.

This government agency will manage and oversee the sale of timber along the northeast shore of Lake Superior. The plan calls for the corporation to manage five existing forest management units — Nagagami Forest, White River Forest, Big Pic Forest, Black River Forest and the Pic River Ojibway Forest.

With this new model, local timber supply will be better aligned with market demand. It will also be easier for entrepreneurs, First Nations and local communities to participate in the forestry industry and will help the forestry sector grow and create jobs.

Modernizing the management of wood supply is part of the McGuinty government's Growth Plan for Northern Ontario. A strong northern economy protects the services that mean most to Ontario families — health care and education.

We’re continuing to build some exciting new tools to replace some of our older technologies. The new tools will make it easier for users to find, catalogue, order and use data. We expect a new metadata tool and data ordering tool to be ready this fall.

We’re also redesigning our Warehouse database to simplify data class models and make data easier to understand and use. Some of the changes may require you to modify your existing programs or processes. If you have a database, app or process that relies on our database, you need to read this technical bulletin.

LIO Make a Map
LIO's popular but outdated Make a Map app will be retired later this year. The data and functions it offered will be provided by some new, modern map tools on the web sites of Ontario Government ministries.

We’ll let you know when and where these tools will be available.
