Welcome to the Forestry Funding Programs Database portal.

The Crees have lived in a sustainable manner without harming the environment for thousands of years. Despite the rapid pace of change that we have faced in the last 30 years, many Crees continue to live primarily from what the land provides. This way of life is at the heart of Cree tradition and forms the Cree sense of self and community.

The Forestry Program Prioritization Committee exists to promote projects that enhance and reinforce Cree traditional activities and/or foster social and economic development. We also encourage conservation of the environment and wildlife habitat through the implementation of best environmental management practices for each of the projects undertaken.


The Forestry Program Prioritization Committee (FPPC) was formed through Council Board resolution in 2006. The mandate of the Committee is to oversee the dispersal of forestry related program funding for the Cree Nation according to the parameters set out in two separate agreements with Quebec.learn more…
