Annual Report of the Minister of Natural Resources of the Province of Ontario: Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 1981 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Annual Report of the Minister of Natural Resources of the Province of Ontario: Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 1981
In April, 1981, I was honored to be appointed as Ontario's Minister of Natural Resources. I view the Ministry of Natural Resources as an exciting challenge because of the breadth of the Ministry's mandate and the vital importance of natural resources to the economic and social well-being of the people of Ontario.
To ensure that Ontario residents receive the greatest continuous benefit from their natural resources, the Ministry takes an integrated approach to resource management. Different combinations of uses of the various natural resources in a given geographical area are evaluated; the option which produces the most overall benefits is adopted.
The Ministry applies this management strategy directly to Crown lands, where it has administrative responsibility, and encourages municipalities and private land-owners to apply it to privately owned land.
Benefits from the use of the provinces natural resources are many. Examples for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1981 include:
The value of shipments from forest-related industries was just in excess of $6.0 billion; exports were $2.0 billion and employment 78,000 jobs.
The total value of mineral production in Ontario was $4.68 billion, and mining tax revenues reached a record high of $160.5 million.
3.2 million nights of camping and 5.5 million days of outdoor recreation occurred in our provincial parks; while 4.5 million days of hunting, 35.4 million days of fishing were enjoyed throughout the province.
Expenditures by anglers were estimated to be $414 million, while over $230 million in gross sales, $132 million in income and 5,200 associated jobs were created by the Provincial Parks program and by expenditures of visitors to the parks.
The value of the commercial fish harvest was $23.6 million, while the value of wild fur pelts and wild rice was $24.4 million.
The Province received a total of over $22 million from tax revenues under The Mining Tax Act, Crown timber revenues and water power rentals.
225 cottage lots on Crown land were either sold or leased.
In carrying out its widespread resource management responsibilities, the Ministry often faces conflicting demands from many competing interests.
I would like to reiterate that my Ministry is committed to providing information to and consulting with the public on all issues of concern. It is my hope that this approach will lead to both better policies and to a greater public understanding of how and why the eventual decisions are made.
