Review of the 2018-2023 Tactical Plans for Integrated Forest Development

One of the JBACE’s mandates is to study and comment, before their ministerial sanction, the Tactical Plans for Integrated Forest Development covering the territory subject to Section 22 of the JBNQA.

The review takes into account the adapted forestry regime of the Agreement concerning a new relationship between the Government of Quebec and the Crees of Quebec as well as the provisions of the Agreement on Governance in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay Territory between the Crees of Eeyou Istchee and the Gouvernement du Québec that relate to forestry. The JBACE also took into consideration the new terms and conditions of the 2018 Adapted Forestry Regime. In order to avoid duplication, and with the objective of presenting constructive comments to the MPPF, the JBACE members adopted two novel parameters for the review: 1) the protection of wildlife resources; and, 2) continued access to these resources. Criteria and indicators were developed from the parameters and used during the review.
