Ontario's Tenure and Licensing System

Forest Tenure is the term commonly used to describe the allocation and licensing of timber from Crown forests. Tenure is governed by legal arrangements that define the rights and responsibilities assigned to forestry companies and other resource users.

The allocation and licensing process is governed by the Crown Forest Sustainability Act, 1994 (CFSA) and its regulations. In Ontario, access to forest resources from Crown lands is provided by mechanisms available under Part 3 of the CFSA which include Supply Agreements, Sustainable Forest Licenses and other Forest Resource Licenses.

For more information on Ontario’s Tenure and Licensing System please visit Forest Tenure Modernization - Ontario Government, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
