Back to the Ministry of Natural Resources Summary page

 

The Natural Resources Management Program provides leadership and oversight in the management of Ontario’s forests, Crown land, water, renewable energy, aggregate and petroleum resources through the development, implementation and improvement of legislation, policies, programs, information systems and standards.

The Natural Resources Management Program also provides leadership and oversight in the management of Ontario’s fish and wildlife resources, parks and protected areas, including the protection and management of provincially significant natural, cultural and recreational environment in order to promote healthy and sustainable ecosystems, conserve biodiversity, and enhance opportunities for outdoor recreation.

In addition, the Program provides leadership and oversight in the management of capital infrastructure assets such as fish culture facilities, Parks, Crown land, water, and other infrastructure investments necessary to deliver ministry programs.
