Forest Resource Management


Tembec’s Abitibi-West Forest Resource Management (FRM) group plans forest operations and manages the forest to supply the Tembec lumber mills in La Sarre and Bearn, in Abitibi-Témiscamingue. 

The Abitibi-West FRM group conducts forest operations as a timber supply guarantee holder for timberin Forest Management Units (FMU) north of La Sarre in Northern Quebec (FMUs 085-51 and 085-62), and the FMU near Rouyn-Noranda (FMU 082-51). Under the former forest regime, the group was responsible for developing the General Forest Management Plan, which described and mapped management operations and themaininfrastructure in the five-year plan.

As of April 1, 2013, under the new forest regime, the Quebec department of natural resources (Ministère des Ressources naturelles, MRN), now known as Ministry of Forest, Wildlife and Park (Ministères des forêts, de la faune et des Parcs, MFFP) is responsible for drafting the tactical integrated forest management plan. The MFFP is also responsible for developing the operational forest management plan (PAFIO 2013-2018) in conjunction with the local supply guarantee holders. Based on the PAFIO, Tembec schedules and conducts its annual forest operations in a responsible manner, including road construction, harvesting and transporting wood to the mills. Tembec ensures that forest operations are conducted safely, in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and with respect for the environment. 


The territory managed by the Abitibi-West FRM has been certified under the National Boreal Standard (2004) of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) since 2005. It is the first public forest certified to FSC standards in Quebec.

Public participation

To harmonize land uses, Tembec consults with other users and Aboriginal communities in meetings, public consultations and via the integrated land and resource management committee (TGIRT). Comments are welcome at any time but we suggest that you use the official period of MFFP public consultation.

You can view all the documents related to the TGIRT of Rouyn-Noranda on the site of the city of Rouyn-Noranda (link).
