The current Ontario Forest Policy Framework requires industry to engage with affected First Nations through the Wood Processing Facility Licence business plan requirements. This is a Crown issued licence that expires every 5 years and is associated with the legal requirements set out under the Crown Forest Sustainability Act where the Minister allocates and makes available wood fibre – directives or allocations
