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 efficient program delivery. The major program areas include forest management, fish and wildlife management, Crown land and water management, Ontario Parks (i.e. provincial parks and other protected areas), and field services support. This program also includes 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.
