Regulatory compliance

Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements is a key objective for Tembec’s forestry operations. Extensive legislative requirements are in place at the federal, provincial and local levels, to ensure the sustainability of all forest resources and values.

Our work includes detailed public consultations

Within each province, natural resource ministries provide the majority of legal requirements through sector-specific legislation, regulations, manuals and guidelines to address particularly the annual allowable cut, forest management planning, forest licenses rights and obligations, renewal of harvested areas, wildlife habitat and watercourse protection and payment of stumpage fees for harvesting of timber. The regeneration of harvested areas naturally or through tree planting or seeding is required by law. Opportunities for detailed public consultation during the development of forest management plans are provided for all citizens. First Nations and Métis communities are afforded specific engagement approaches that reflect the uniqueness and context of each group.
