Description of Policy:
Ontario is committed to sustainable forest management to ensure long-term Crown forest health. The province also recognizes climate change as a legitimate and urgent problem requiring government action. Healthy forests play an important role in mitigating climate change impacts because they can absorb carbon dioxide from the air and store it in wood. How Ontario’s Crown forests are managed can influence the amount of carbon stored in trees and wood products or released into the atmosphere. Specific forest management practices may reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while others may increase greenhouse gas removals from the atmosphere.Read More

After months of hard work, the Red Sky Métis Independent Nation (RSMIN) Heritage team is ecstatic to officially announce the launch of the public RSMIN Community Heritage Wiki (CHW). You can now find this wiki site at rsmin.ca/CHW.
The RSMIN CHW is a groundbreaking concept in relation to how other communities are collecting and preserving data, and although many other wiki sites exist, such as Wikipedia, there are no other sites that are completely dedicated to one community with goals in preserving its unique and untold heritage. The RSMIN CHW is a shared, collaborative, on-line, collection of researched and cited information directly related to the RSMIN community and has been sought and curated by the RSMIN community. RSMIN hopes that publicly sharing the community's untold history will not only bring the community closer, but also help educate others and move toward recognition and healing.Read More
