What is Abitibi River Forest Management Inc.?

Abitibi River Forest Management Inc. (ARFMI) is an alliance of forest resource management partners striving to maximize the economic, social and environmental benefits to the businesses and communities where they live and work. We believe that sustainable forest management will provide long term environmental certainty and economic opportunity for forest-based businesses and communities and benefits for the people who reside in Northern communities.

The ARFMI partners have assumed all forest management planning and operational responsibilities, including forest regeneration and maintenance, on Crown land for the Abitibi River Forest. The more than 35,000 square kilometres of managed forested land extends westward from the Ontario/Quebec border for 190 kilometres, and from a border that lies south of Timmins to the northern-most extend of Ontario’s managed forest.
