For the past twenty years the Eastern Ontario Model Forest (EOMF) has brought together stakeholders from different interest groups to research, implement, and practice sustainable forest management principles. The EOMF is a unique forum for landowners, industry, First Nations, government, organizations, and others to meet and work together to sustain and manage our forest resources.
The Board of Directors of the EOMF met on March 20th, 2014. An important focus of the meeting was to review the financial status of EOMF following a re-organization to reflect the withdrawal of our Canadian Forest Service funding.
It is with great enthusiasm, the Board would like to announce that with our new restructured organization they have positioned themselves to continue into the future with a stable and well-balanced program. “To ensure ongoing stability, we have elected to manage our finances on a rolling three year time frame. We believe this three-year time horizon will allow us the opportunity to grow in new ways; our objective being to extend our time horizon indefinitely”, says Jim McCready, President of the Eastern Ontario Model Forest.
