Through the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP), landowners who get their property classified as ‘Managed Forest’ pay 25% of the municipal tax rate set for residential properties.
To participate, you must prepare and follow a 10-year Managed Forest Plan that details how you will manage your forest property responsibly.
The plan must be approved by a Managed Forest Plan Approver. These individuals are independent resource management consultants, certified by, but not employed by, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
