The Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program and your wetland

Offered in Ontario

Let us help you save on your Managed Forest Plan while conserving one of our most important natural resources: wetlands.

Are you completing a Managed Forest Plan for your southern Ontario property? Do you have an existing wetland on your property? We can help you save on your investment.

If you are a landowner who has qualified for Ontario’s Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP) and your existing wetland meets our criteria, DUC will provide a 40 per cent reimbursement (up to $600) toward your approved Managed Forest Plan. Your wetland must be a minimum of five acres (two hectares) and meet DUC’s criteria for waterfowl habitat.

This is a pilot partnership under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s MFTIP program that includes DUC, the Ontario Woodlot Association and forest landowners. This innovative partnership is helping to increase wetland stewardship in southern Ontario.
