Notice of Determination for Saulteaux IR159 Timber Harvest Plan 2021-22 

June 1, 2021 - Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Saulteaux IR159 Timber Harvest Plan 2021-22 is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

The determination was based on the following factors:
- by Band Council Resolution, Saulteaux First Nation requested that Indigenous Services Canada issue a Timber permit to Mistik Management for IR 159
-Saulteaux First Nation will receive resource revenue which benefits the First Nation and its membership
-no public comments were received concerning the project
-mitigation measures

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