Determinations

Council may determine whether or not a person contravened a provision of the Private Managed Forest Land Act or the regulations. The Compliance Determinations Procedure Manual describes the process that the Council follows for making a determination.  Some formal investigations lead to a decision of no contravention and are closed before a formal determination is carried out.
