The Nawiinginokiima Forest Management Corporation was established to operate within a defined management area that includes the communities of the Ojibways of the Pic River First Nation, Pic Mobert First Nation, Hornepayne Aboriginal community, Marathon, Hornepayne, Manitouwadge and White River.
Tenure modernization is part of our long-term commitment to revitalizing Ontario’s forestry industry. A modernized tenure system will create new economic development opportunities for northern communities and First Nations, and the appointment of the board for Nawiinginokiima is an important step in this process.
The forestry sector continues to be a priority for our government and is certainly central to supporting strong northern communities. We look forward to its continued growth with the creation of Nawiinginokiima Forest Management Corporation.
