Recently the Forestry Futures Trust Committee attended the "Taking Stock- inventory options for today and tomorrow" held January 26, 2011 in Kapuskasing.  It was a joint venture between FRP (Forest Research Partnership) and CIF (Canadian Institute of Forestry). The MNR and FFTC led a facilitated discussion that explored Research & Development and Training Needs.  Questionnaires  were distributed to 5 groups ( formed by stakeholder affiliation) and 5 minute presentations were given at the end of the session that discussed the group's views on the two questionnaires.    
The FFTC wishes to thank the organizers of this sucessful event, for allowing us to survey the capitve audience for their input.  Additionally, thank you to John Pinneau (CIF) for allowing us to post some of his pictures.

The 2009/2010 FFT Annual Report is now available for viewing.  As with the past few annual reports, it is the streamlined report format for ease of downloading and reading.  All project information previously included in the body of the report will be updated annually at the individual program links.  We welcome any feedback regarding this new format.

This year three FFT silviculture rounds are reported, instead of the usual two.  Round 29 Job Stimulus was a special $6 million round funded by the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry.  Please look for an update regarding this round to be posted in the very near future.
