Notice of Determination for Lac Eauclaire Timber Harvest Program


April 1, 2021 - Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Lac Eauclaire Timber Harvest Program 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
 -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 and visual buffers apply
   -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.
