Ontario Releases Draft Far North Land Use Strategy

Posted on October 7, 2015

Ontario is launching the next phase in the development of a Far North Land Use Strategy by releasing a draft strategy, and is asking First Nations, stakeholders, and the public to provide their input and ideas.

When complete, the strategy will guide Far North joint land use planning teams on:

  • Cultural, social, environmental and economic interests across the Far North;
  • Categories of land use designations and protected area designations; and
  • Processes/requirements for amending community based land use plans.

The strategy will also provide information and guidance to developers and resource managers as they plan and approve projects. The draft strategy has been prepared with input from First Nations, stakeholders and the general public. The province previously released for comment an introduction to the Far North Land Use Strategy in December 2013, followed by a discussion paper in September 2014.

In addition, First Nations and Ontario are working jointly to prepare land use plans for the Far North. Land use planning in the Far North will contribute to economic growth while ensuring areas of cultural and ecological value are protected.
