September 17, 2020 - Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Weepuskow Sahgaiechan IR 165D Timber Harvest Plan 2020-21 is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

The determination was based on the following factors:
 - by Band Council Resolution, Canoe Lake Cree First Nation requested that Indigenous Services Canada issue a Timber permit to Mistik Management for IR 165D
 -Canoe Lake Cree First Nation will receive resource revenue which benefits the First Nation and its membership
 -no public comments were received concerning the project
 -mitigation measures outlined in Operating Plan and Aquatic Habitat Protection Permit

Implementation of mitigation measures is required for the project to address:
 -riparian setbacks
 -Mistik Managment will follow best practices and requirements outlined in their   Aquatic Habitat Protection Permit for the Forest Management Area
 -fuel storage and machinery refueling practices
 -potential bird nesting sites

Inidgenous Services Canada is satisfied that the carrying out of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
