Abstract: First Nations' Participation in the Management of Quebec's Forests: The Case of the Scientific and Planning Committee of the Forêt Montmorency. This study analyzes the participation of First Nations in a multi-stakeholder participation process in Quebec's public forest. In particular, it addresses the role played by informal social organization, that is to say, institutional thinking and institutional positions, on an actor's involvement in a public participation process. Drawing upon the interactionist approach, this study postulates that an actor's actions in a public participation process cannot be fully understood without reference to the contextual dynamics of an informal social organisation. This analysis of different dynamics related to public participation is based on an ethnographic case study: the Huron-Wendat Nation's participation in the Scientific and Planning Committee of the Forêt Montmorency. This study will therefore analyse the various components of informal social organizations, such as reciprocity, interdependence and inter-actor confidence, and the role that they can play in a flexible institutional framework process. Keywords: Public participation, First Nations, positional analysis, Forêt Montmorency, ethnographic case study.
