Clearly, the team firmly believes that we can Succeed here.

Chairwoman of the Core Leadership Team, Lise Ouellette, proudly presented her annual report at the Annual General Meeting, June 4th, 2016 in Pohénégamook. The meeting brought together fifty members and ambassadors from Acadia of the Land and Forests. " When I think of the year 2015-2016, words like: foundation, mobilization and results come to mind," said Lise Ouellette in her presentation.

Concrete results are emerging

The Core Leadership Team is a full-fledged organization duly incorporated in Canada and registered in Quebec, New Brunswick and Maine with everything a nonprofit organization implicates and more. It has adopted a 2015-2018 strategic plan and an action plan that is nourished and implemented by close to a hundred people who contribute to sub-working groups.

The first priority project for the members was a railway re-load intermodal operation. At the request of manufacturers of Acadia of the Lands and Forests, a feasibility study was conducted and links were initiated between the companies in the region.

A communication plan has been developed and implemented to facilitate the flow of information throughout the territory of Acadia of the Lands and Forests and press meetings were initiated.

As a follow-up to the upper Saint-John lakes Forum held in June 2015, the CLT brought together the region’s environmental stakeholders to develop a project to protect indigenous fish species in our common lakes.
