Ontario Investing $60 Million in Forest Biomass Program

The Government of Ontario is investing an additional $60 million in the Forest Biomass Program. The program funds projects that harvest more wood from Crown forests, increase regional economic growth and find new uses for underutilized wood and mill by-products, known as forest biomass, in collaboration with stakeholders, industry and Indigenous communities. Batchewana First Nation has been awarded $250,000 of the $60 million the Province is investing.

The announcement of additional funding follows the program’s third phase of investment, which committed more than $6.1 million to 12 research, innovation and modernization initiatives developing the untapped economic potential and environmental benefits of biomass.

  • Wahkohtowin Development GP Inc. (Wawa) – $188,000
    • The project will advance Indigenous participation in forest biomass development and its benefits by studying the financial and logistical requirements for the community to undertake management of a forest biomass yard.

  1. Just think, if the irresponsible crooked criminal PM (drama teacher Trudeau) wouldn’t have scammed Canadians for $60,000,000,00+ on the new ARRIVESCAM app this program could be paid for up front. When will the thievery stop and when will they put this clueless drama teacher crook in jail??
