NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2103

The Natural Resource Management Program strives to achieve a balance between natural resource use and protection, to ensure the recognition of a broad range of natural resource values, and to develop mechanisms for open decision-making and program delivery. The major program areas are: forest management, fish and wildlife management, Crown land and water management and Ontario Parks (i.e. provincial parks and other protected areas). This mandate also includes the implementation of Ontario's Living Legacy and the management of non-renewable resources such as aggregates, natural gas, petroleum and brine (i.e.salt). The Ministry's infrastructure (i.e.capital) activities rest largely within this program area.
