Outaouais residents have until February 15, 2022, to participate in a public consultation outlining potential new intervention sectors, as well as new roads and infrastructures across the Outaouais that would be suitable for development under the plans d’aménagement forestier intégré opérationnels (PAFIO) de l’Outaouais.
Commercial forestry work could be carried out as early at April 2022 near and around the following municipalities and territories (the MRC Pontiac municipalities are in bold and the MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais municipalities are in italic).
The map identifying the potential locations is available here.
