Notices on their way to Ontario’s wood supply applicants
Ontario has chosen the winners of its wood supply competition and notices have gone out to the applicants.
The goal of Ontario’s wood supply competition was to attract new investment in the forest sector, support new and innovative ventures to stimulate Ontario’s economy and build an industry of top performers – both existing and new.
There are some reports in the media already of those who have been rejected.
The company Far North Bio-Mass had hoped to build a wood pellet production plant in Ignace, Ontario. Their plans depended on the government’s approval for wood rights to the English River Forest area. On Tuesday the company received a letter notifying them that their proposal was rejection. No reason was given.
The applicants who receive an approval notice have 30 days to respond to the province.
