Engagement opportunities provide a forum for the Companies to present information and gather public input on the development of the Lesser Slave Lake Regional Forest Management Plan. Such opportunities will likely include open houses and booths at trade shows in communities where the level of interest warrants it, and is likely to include the communities where successful open houses have been previously held such as: Slave Lake, Swan Hills and High Prairie. It is anticipated that there will be a number of engagement opportunities throughout plan development at some of the locations. The number and location of engagement opportunities will be finalized as the plan progresses, and will be publicized through news releases, advertisements in local media and through direct contact with interested parties. Content and information to be exchanged at each engagement opportunity will vary as the plan progresses and would include information such forest planning frameworks, plan development milestones, VOITs, areas eligible for harvesting, local interests, and SHS.
