This project will research and develop an economic case transitioning forest conservation lands, and to design and recommend a permanent conservation policy pathway to decision makers. These conservation set-asides present an opportunity to protect an existing one million hectares in Ontario. By creating a policy pathway to: a) provide interim protections from other industrial activity, and b) permanently protect and conserve these lands, these Ontario forests, and future set asides can be permanently protected.
