Working together to build a forest community industry
The specific objectives of the Lac-Saint-Jean Model Forest (LSJMF) are to pool everyone’s expertise and knowledge in order to find common opportunities for developing and enhancing forest resources so that we can continue to benefit from the forest in other ways.
Why diversify our forest economy?
According to Natural Resources Canada, 65% of LSJMF area residents are highly dependent on the forest. In the Saguenay−Lac-Saint-Jean region, more than 2,950 people work in forest%u2011related jobs and 8.9 million cubic metres of timber are harvested, the most of any region in Quebec.
