Notice of Determination for Pelican Lake Timber Harvesting Plan

November 5, 2020 - Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Pelican Lake Timber Harvesting Plan is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

The determination was based on the following factors:
  - by Band Council Resolution, Pelican Lake First Nation requested that Indigenous Services Canada issue a Timber permit to Tolko
-Pelican Lake First Nation will receive resource revenue which benefits the First Nation and its membership
 -no public comments were received concerning the project
 -mitigation measures outlined in Operations and Harvesting Plan

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

Indigenous Services Canada is satisfied that the carrying out of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
