MNR land sales help the ministry optimize its land holdings and fulfill its responsibility to maximize recreational, conservation and economic opportunities for the state, according to a press release from MNR. Public lands support economies based on natural resources, outdoor recreation opportunities, ecological benefits such as clean air and water, and critical habitat for rare plant and wildlife.
The sale of land allows the MRN to withdraw land from its portfolio that no longer meets the main management objectives. Depending on the type of land sold, sales revenue may go to the School Trust or provide funds to allow MNR to invest in other acquisitions of high priority land, the statement said.
