SOPFIM’s Strategic Plan 2023-2025 is essential for the organization’s sustainability over time by dictating where it wants to go and establishing the steps to follow to get there. Strategic planning is not a one-time project, but an evolving one. SOPFIM has therefore embarked on a major project, that of forging the organization to face the future challenges it will have to meet. The four main strategic axes will therefore become organizational priorities to which actions and decisions must be directed.
SOPFIM’s main mandate is to protect Quebec forests during the spruce budworm (SBW) epidemic. The regions currently affected by the epidemic are Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Bas-Saint-Laurent, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Capitale-Nationale, Gaspésie, Côte-Nord, Chaudière-Appalaches and Outaouais.
SOPFIM’s mission is to protect forest resources against insects and diseases in harmony with its environment. Its main mandate to date is the control of the spruce budworm (SBW). To do so, it carries out aerial spraying programs of biological insecticide (Btk) on Quebec’s forests.
Reflecting the vision of its members, SOPFIM is the world reference in terms of the fight against insects and diseases that ravage the forests with the greatest respect for the laws on the protection of the environment and in complete harmony with the living world.
