The Ontario Forestry Association is hosting free workshops (see list below) on MFTIP. These workshops will show you how to apply for tax relief under MFTIP, set objectives for your property, prepare a forest stewardship plan and identify local resources to assist you in achieving your management goals. These workshops are sponsored by the Trees Ontario Foundation.
