Usage Considerations

  • Violations or contraventions of the Forests Act and/or Timber Management Regulation may be found during audits and inspections and through forest company self-reporting. If an investigation confirms a violation, the forest company or individual is required to fix the problem. Appropriate fines or penalties, established under legislation, may also be assessed for these contraventions. Section 65 of the Forests Act and Section 59.9 of the Public Lands Act require the Minister to disclose: the name of the person or company who has broken the law or specific conditions; the municipality in which the person resides or the company is located; a description of the contravention; and, the amount of the penalty. To meet these legislated requirements, the Department publishes all contraventions assessed in the last five years. In all cases appearing below, the respondents have been notified of the penalty assessments and invoiced accordingly.
