job opportunities and income associated with forest and mill operations in the
vicinity of aboriginal communities;
wood to wood processing facilities such as sawmills in Aboriginal communities;
of Aboriginal third-party licence negotiations with existing licencees where
forest resource licences to Aboriginal people where unallocated Crown timber
exists close to reserves;

addressed in the forest management planning process.
MNR shall report on the progress of these on-going negotiations district-by-district in the Provincial Annual Report in Forest Management that will be submitted to the Legislature.
