NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2103

The Natural Resource Management program provides leadership and oversight in the management of Ontario's forests, fish and wildlife resources, Crown land and water resources, parks and protected areas, including the protection and management of provincially significant natural, cultural and recreational environment.

The program also provides leadership and oversight in the management of non-renewable resources, such as petroleum and aggregates, and the Ministry's infrastructure (i.e., capital) investments.
