The Saskatchewan Forest Resources Management Regulations (April 1, 1999) require a periodic independent sustainable forest management audit to be conducted for each licensee who holds a forest management agreement. To meet its statutory responsibilities, the Province of Saskatchewan has designed an audit program intended to assess:
1) How well the licensee has implemented and met the objectives of the forest management plan;
2) How well the licensee has complied with terms of the forest management agreement and applicable regulations;
3) The effectiveness of forest management activities in achieving the forest management objectives.
The audit process has been designed to assess Crown land forest management in Saskatchewan through the application of continuous improvement and adaptive management principles. As required by the regulations, the audits will be completed not later than six months prior to the license extension date or the date a revised forest management plan is due, whichever is earlier. The frequency is typically once every five years. The purpose of the Saskatchewan Environment Independent Sustainable Forest Management Audit is to facilitate continuous improvement of the practice of forestry in Saskatchewan.
An Independent Sustainable Forest Management Audit of Mistik's forestry activities was undertaken in July 2004 by KPMG Performance Registrar Inc. The Audit Technical Summary and the most recent update to the associated Coordinated Action Plan can be accessed below.
