QC invests in sustainable forest management projects


The Government of Québec has invested nearly $2.4M into sustainable forest management projects at postsecondary institutions and centres across the province. Five of the nine projects will be carried out by researchers from the Université du Québec network: Yan Boucher (Université du Québec à Chicoutimi), Frédérik Doyon (Université du Québec en Outaouais), Audrey Maheu (UQO), Maxence Martin (Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue), and Philippe Nolet (UQO). Two will be carried out by Université Laval researchers Évelyne Thiffault and Eric R Labelle. The two remaining projects will be conducted by Jean Marchal and Gilles Joanisse, researchers from the Centre d’enseignement et de recherche en foresterie based out of the Cégep de Sainte-Foy. QC states that an additional $2M has been set aside for another round of projects in 2023-24.
