Summary:

The EOMF is a not-for-profit, charitable organization. As one of 15 large-scale working model forests that represent the five major forest ecoregions of Canada, the EOMF works with government, landowners, industry, First Nations, non-government organizations and others to develop new ways to sustain and manage our forest resources. The model forest provides a unique forum where forest users — many of whom may never have met before — can forge partnerships and gain a greater understanding of conflicting views, share their knowledge, and combine their expertise and resources.
