Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry

What we do…
As a ministry, we are working to promote healthy, sustainable ecosystems and conserve biodiversity (the variety of life on Earth). We conduct scientific research and apply the findings to develop effective resource management policies. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry also manages Ontario’s Crown land, promotes economic opportunities in the resource sector and enhances opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Some of our work includes:
– Developing and implementing a long-term plan for environmentally sustainable economic development while protecting the boreal region in the Far North
– Implementing the new Endangered Species Act
– Contributing to Go Green Ontario, the government’s climate change action plan

– Promoting, marketing and enhancing the protection of natural heritage in southern Ontario
