Overview

An independent auditor assesses the performance of both the sustainable forest licence holder and the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry in meeting their forest management responsibilities.

The ministry and industry respond to audit findings by preparing action plans and reporting on the progress towards the completion of actions.

Action plans are developed after the final independent audit report is accepted. Action plans describe how the findings made by the independent auditor will be addressed.
